    Online Faculty Mentoring: Remote Means to Provide Supervision and Improve Performance
    (2018-03) Carriere, Lisa Ackland; Edwards, Craig
    Online programs, like IWU’s College of Adult and Professional Studies (CAPS), may employ hundreds of adjunct instructors who are geographically removed from their supervisors and students. With this spread comes a need for ongoing assessment and support. Typical faculty mentoring is in-person and on campus. However, an in-person assessment is sometimes impossible, and with online classes, at times unnecessary. Rather, a limited presence within an online class is more helpful for assessment and guidance.

    Atypical use of audience response system provides opportunity to formatively assess faculty teaching and improve learning outcomes
    (2018-03-02) Hopper, Mari; Carroll, Megan; Wright, Serena; Bauer, Erich; Carlos, W. Graham
    In response to curricular reform, a particularly effective new approach was developed for a course offered at all nine IUSM centers. Participants will learn about interdisciplinary planning, implementation of a "Grand Rounds" approach, novel use of audience response system for retrieval practice and formative assessment of teaching methods, and how Bloom scale ratings relate to student engagement and focus.
