Faculty Development Center
Dr. Anne B. Bucalos, Director / Debi Griffin, Assistant Director
The Faculty Development Center serves as a central resource for Bellarmine faculty. We offer a variety of resources, programs, and activities that support faculty in teaching, scholarship, and service and encourage collegial conversation on these topics. Our current programs include:
- Instructional Technology Support: The FDC staff provides instructional handouts, workshops, and one-on-one instruction for faculty using Blackboard, Turnitin, and many other campus technologies.
- Knight-to-Knight Mentoring Program: The Knight-to-Knight Program pairs each new faculty member with a seasoned mentor. The program is designed to build community, acclimate faculty to Bellarmine, and offer positive faculty role models to our new faculty.
- Learning Communities: Faculty Learning Communities serve as an extended learning opportunity to foster collaboration among colleagues within a particular work environment on a specialized topic. In 2012 two faculty learning communities were formed to increase awareness of technology applications and technology use in our classrooms.
- New Faculty Orientation: In addition to welcoming new faculty to our campus community, our New Faculty Orientation sessions provide essential information, guest speakers, webinars, and group discussion on pertinent topics.
- Spotlight series: Established in 2011, the spotlight series offers each month 4-5 faculty professional development sessions focused on a given theme. In its first academic year, we offered 38 different faculty development sessions with 289 people participating.
