Teaching Resources

Someday in the near future we plan to start an Salem State wiki in which everyone can take part in organizing and sharing resources on teaching and the scholarship of teaching and learning.  In the meantime we have vainly attempted to organize some of the most worthwhile resources.  Each of the section titles link to a full page of resources, but we have listed the best-of-the-best below. 

Articles:  The greatest vetted list of articles and online resources has been assembled by the Office of Faculty and Organizational Development at Michigan State University.  Just steer your browser to http://fod.msu.edu/OIR/index.asp and browse their extensive list of links and articles ranging from "Cognitive, Moral, and Emotional Development of Students" to e-portfolios. 

Conferences: If you pick just one faculty development conference to attend this year make it these five:

New England Faculty Development Consortiuum (NEFDC)
Professional and Organizational Development (POD)
Lilly East Conference on College and University Teaching

Technology oriented:

NorthEast Regional Computing Program(NERCOMP)
EDUCAUSE Mid-Atlantic Regional Conference

Online Journals: if you are just getting started a great place to start with technology is ELearn Magazine . An entry point for teaching methodology and SOTL is MontainRise. Experts should proceed to the full list of Online Journals!
