“The aim of education should be to teach us rather how to think, than what to think - rather to improve our minds, so as to enable us to think for ourselves, than to load the memory with thoughts of other men.”
goal of Faculty Development is to encourage, support, share, and applaud
innovative teaching and learning methods. Faculty and staff share
techniques in/and discuss critical thinking, active learning, instructional
technology, writing, assessment of student learning, and best practices.
We also seek to cultivate community bonds between students, staff, faculty,
and the administration.
