Attend this session and learn how faculty professional development affects your bottom line. In a 2019 Gallup poll, 51% of Americans viewed having a college education as very important, compared to 70% of Americans in 2012. As students and parents question the value of a college degree, and the return on their educational investment more than ever, the American Council on Education informs us that our need to invest in quality teaching is greater than ever. We need teachers that are clear, organized and that understand how students learn to accelerate a student’s learning, reduce total college costs and to get the students into the job market faster and better prepared. Techniques for effective instruction are known and can be shared, though many in higher education whether adjunct or full professor do not study how to teach and how students learn.
