Description:This webinar is the first in a three-part series that focuses on specific attributes exhibited by excellent faculty. In an effort to create a culture of teaching excellence, Broward College has identified specific attributes that its Center for Teaching Excellence and Learning helps faculty cultivate. This webinar series covers (1) pedagogical experts, (2) student-centered faculty, and (3) systematic assessors. The facilitators focus on one topic in each webinar, as they share specific strategies and resources faculty use to achieve teaching excellence or, for those familiar with RateMyProfessors.com, educational "hotness." By the end of the three webinars, participants will be able to (1) define the attribute in the context of teaching excellence, (2) identify specific strategies and techniques to use in the learning environment, and (3) apply strategies and techniques in the learning environment.
