Faculty Support and Development
No one starts teaching online knowing exactly what to do. The shift from on-ground to online teaching can be a profound source of anxiety for faculty members who have perfected their craft over decades and may not consider themselves particularly tech-savvy. Because of this, universities and colleges need to be thoughtful and methodical about their approach to garnering initial and continued faculty support for online programs. For this reason, our first order of business is to create trust with your faculty by providing thoughtful support and professional development.
Noodle’s core strength, and the source of its greatest satisfaction, comes from working with dedicated educators to transfer their pedagogy to the online environment. We can supplement your existing faculty development initiatives with:
1:1 coaching sessions
Noodle will provide individual 1:1 coaching to faculty preparing for their first live session and then debrief immediately following that first session. 1:1 coaching sessions will take place online.
Group training and workshops
Noodle can provide skilled facilitators with extensive experience building curricula and facilitating groups to help faculty identify and affirm program goals and then align courses and assessments with those goals.
On-demand self-paced resources
We will provide a library of self-paced resources on topics unique to the online teaching experience (e.g., pedagogical strategies, preparation tips, suggestions for working with small groups, etc.). 24/7 access to technical support services and online point-of-need tutorials.
