Faculty Commons

The Faculty Commons will serve as a gathering place for interprofessional development, discussion, and educational innovation.  It will be a welcoming and safe space for instructors to work with librarians, instructional designers, Center for Educational Innovation (CEI), Health Sciences IT staff and other teaching experts to develop their skills, learn about new teaching methods and practice them in a small active learning classroom. 

It will also serve as a social/gathering place for instructors, a landing place for visiting adjunct instructors and a place to host small group meetings.  The Faculty Commons will contain video conferencing tools, allowing the sharing of best practices and instruction between instructors on multiple campuses.
