Partnership to Make TFSC Faculty Development Presentations Available
The University of Arkansas Libraries, the Office of Research and Innovation and the Wally Cordes Teaching and Faculty Support Center (TFSC) are partnering to make TFSC faculty development presentations available in ScholarWorks. Presentation videos and supporting materials will be archived in a searchable and retrievable format available to interested individuals worldwide.
According to TFSC co-director Don Johnson, "Indexing through ScholarWorks will make the top-quality teaching development presentations done by our faculty permanently available to peers here and at other institutions. We certainly appreciate the great work of Dr. Melody Herr, head, and Cedar Middleton at the Office of Scholarly Communications in making this possible."
Kathy Sloan, vice provost for faculty affairs, said "the presentations hosted by the TFSC are of top-notch quality. Our faculty have engaged enthusiastically in the online sessions and have learned how to improve their own teaching and contribute to the scholarship of teaching and learning."
Professor Janine Parry's recent presentation entitled "Campus Conversations: Facilitating Temperance in an Intemperate Time" was the first presentation to be archived in ScholarWorks and can be accessed by searching ScholarWorks, by following this link, or through the ScholarWorks link on the TFSC homepage at teaching.uark.edu.
