Teaching and Learning Resources
For faculty and instructors interested in pedagogical innovation, Rutgers offers various resources to help turn that from a potentially laborious, uncertain proposition into a successful reality. The only downside to all these resources is that it can be hard to know where to start. The various units at Rutgers that offer instructional design and other assistance to instructors are quite unique, but you might not be sure exactly what the distinctions are. That is where we come in.
A one-stop shop
Here we provide a one-stop-shop where you can make sense of many of the resources for course design and teaching. By creating this resource, we also hope to strengthen the communithy of practice comprised of faculty and instructors, instructional design and instructional technology experts, and students.
In addition, the calendar of events on our home page lists training sessions and other events related to instructional design and technology, and our profiles of faculty members who have tried something new in the classroom gives you a glimpse of some of the what your peers are trying. Some have succeeded, even remarkably. But there are other stories that, we are not ashamed to say, did not necessarily go as planned--not the first time, anyway. So join with us as we move towards the future together.
