The Winter Faculty Institute is a one-day event at the University of Delaware for faculty to take advantage of the latest research and technological advances in classroom and online instruction. The program changes each year to reflect the latest progress demonstrated by UD faculty, the newest insights from educational research, and the latest opportunities presented by technological advances.

The keynote session will be presented by Bob Gonyea, associate director of Indiana University Center for Postsecondary Research.  Gonyea’s talk and workshop will be of interest to all faculty. 

The morning workshop that follows the keynote presentation will provide an opportunity for faculty to explore some of the issues, opportunities and challenges raised in Gonyea’s keynote address.

The afternoon program will complement the themes raised by Gonyea, as UD faculty share recent advances in teaching and the use of technology in a diverse set of academic disciplines.
