UMA Faculty Development Center

The Faculty Development Center is your one-stop shop for faculty and staff seeking assistance virtually or in person with distance teaching, student engagement at a distance, implementation or use of educational technology. 

We are here for you to answer questions on technology in teaching, troubleshoot Blackboard or Kaltura, explore tech tools to suit your needs, and help you align the design of your online learning assets to your teaching goals.

null Course Design Analysis


Per faculty individual request, we will examine your course materials in Blackboard or others that you provide, and complete an analysis based on evidence-based practices in teaching and learning. We do not make evaluative judgments on quality of instruction, nor do we share the results of the analysis with anyone else, unless you ask us to do so. We will simply provide you with a list of highlights that we think you should keep doing, and some suggested edits for improving your course design. You are under no obligation to make the suggested changes. Ask us for a Course Design Analysis at any time for any one or more of your courses. We are also happy to focus on only one particular aspect of your class. Take a look at the Course Design Review rubric we may use with you.
