PEL Faculty Development

Welcome to the Eckerd College Program for Experienced Learners’ Faculty Development page. In an effort to facilitate the specific needs of teaching our students, we have compiled material that we have found useful over our years of teaching adult learners in PEL. Our goal is for this site to serve as a place where you can access and share articles, handouts, assignments, ideas, and experiences.

To your left are links for Faculty Resources, Teaching Resources, Show and PEL, and Other Resources.

1) The Faculty Resources page includes articles on teaching adult learners, sample syllabi and syllabus requirements, the Faculty Handbook, information on Writing Services, and material from the Faculty Orientation and the Faculty Retreats.         

2) The Teaching Resources page includes handouts, activities, and ideas that PEL instructors can use in the classroom.

3) The Show and PEL page is a space for you to share your materials with our teaching community. Please email with your uploads and ideas.

4) Other Resources includes general information and individual contacts for PEL faculty.

Please feel free to modify any of these materials in any ways that you feel fit your course goals and your students.
