Nationally-recognized for the excellence of its teaching and the accessibility of its professors, Wittenberg University fosters an environment where the teacher-scholar can thrive through faculty development opportunities and through collaborative projects and initiatives with other faculty, with staff, and with students.

 The Faculty Development Administrator works with the Faculty Development Board and the Provost to implement and collaborate on programs and initiatives. Programming varies from semester to semester. The fall  2019 semester will showcase a series of workshops focusing on mental health awareness as well as several others promoting diversity and inclusion in our classroom practices. Other workshops include ones providing practical tips on identifying course outcomes, assessing student writing, and on using the Moodle grading function.

Faculty Development will also be sponsoring two new faculty and staff reading groups this semester, and will be offering the Wittenberg Writing Camp for professors and other university researchers/writers in mid-May.
