The Eberly Center for Teaching Excellence and Educational Innovation

The Eberly Center for Teaching Excellence and Educational Innovation at Carnegie Mellon University  has some excellent resources up on their website at http://www.cmu.edu/teaching/

Explore the links on the menu of the left to find faculty development resources about the following topics:

Some of the materials are special to the Carnegie Mellon University context but most of it is very applicable to any faculty teaching context.  I especially found the 7 principles of learning and 7 principles of effective teaching very useful. There are very few documented and researched based lists of principles available.

Video: Teaching Group Effectiveness

Faculty will often require students to work in groups on significant assignments that are high stakes but without taking the time to teach the students how to work effectively in a group.  And for that reason, groupwork will be quite frustrating.  Several years ago MRU developed the video to help faculty and students learn more about group effectiveness. It is still current, valuable and now available on YouTube.  http://youtu.be/OZabIUzgO0I

I have also built a Ed.TED lesson wrapped around this video that you may also find useful. It can be accessed at http://ed.ted.com/on/YVxzWttH
