The Academic Technology Center (ATC) of Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has met some of its goals in terms of faculty development, particularly around training. However, the main challenge continues to be working around busy faculty schedules. To alleviate this problem, the ATC has developed scalable training solutions and developmental opportunities to meet the needs of its faculty. This session will cover the design and implementation plans for these solutions - a faculty support Web site, online software tutorials, “A la carte” group training, training consolidation between departments and the Teaching Technology Fellowship.
