No faculty member wants to be the “sage on the stage” anymore. Few students learn much by listening to endless lecturing.
But what should faculty do?
With practical advice on topics including interactive lecturing, evidence-based instruction, and more, NEA’s library of Thriving in Academe guides can help faculty to help students learn. Each is written by a faculty developer, specifically for NEA, and intended to be useful for all faculty, whether you’re new to the profession or an experienced college-level educator.
