Learning Resources Faculty Institutes

The Learning Resources Faculty Institutes are two- or four-day immersive professional development opportunities for Bucks County Community College faculty. Designed and convened by faculty for faculty, the institutes, for which participants receive a stipend, prepare faculty for integrating information and multimedia literacy instruction into their courses and assignments, creating accessible course content, providing well-informed and effective academic advising, effectively teaching in a web-conferenced multi-campus format, and redesigning courses through the adoption of open educational resources.

“Bucks County Community College learning resources faculty have shown strong leadership in their participation in these institutes,” said award chair Sandy McCarthy of Washtenaw Community College. “These multidisciplinary professional development programs have expanded over the years from one institute in 2008 to an expanded selection on a variety of topics, including their first institute on open educational resources for the summer of 2018. The learning resources faculty are to be commended for their efforts in providing excellent opportunities to educate the educators.”
