Teaching and Faculty Support Center announces Remote/Hybrid Teaching Commendation

It seems business as usual is not an option for the foreseeable future, so we know many of you are spending extra time reflecting on all we learned in the spring semester and reworking your courses for a variety of contingencies this fall. To provide some structure and community in our professional development, and to recognize your effort, the TFSC has created a new teaching commendation for faculty who wish to participate this summer. This is in addition to the New Faculty Commendation and Not-So-New Faculty Commendations that will be recognized this year.

The Remote/Hybrid Teaching Commendation includes self-paced video modules, reflection papers, and discussion boards on relevant topics. Participants have some flexibility in the topics they explore and how they participate. The reflection papers in the program are intended to serve as the foundation of a Teaching Portfolio that can be included in your annual performance evaluations of teaching. Everyone who completes the Commendation by Aug. 1 will be recognized at the Faculty Teaching Awards Reception in September.  

The Remote/ Hybrid Teaching Commendation program is available in the Wally Cordes Teaching and Faculty Support Center Blackboard Course. If you are not already registered in the Blackboard Course, please send an email to TFSC@uark.edu requesting to be added. You will see the discussion board grow as we add posts and relevant materials.

We look forward to learning alongside you and growing our skill-sets together this summer.
