2021 Faculty Showcase

This year’s Virtual Faculty Showcase focuses on how fellow faculty made improvements to their classes based on their participation in professional development activities at UNC Charlotte. The purpose of this event is to celebrate faculty best practices, especially as it relates to the recent move to online instruction.

This year’s event is being designed as two asynchronous video series

  • Assessing Student Learning in an Online Class
  • Engaging Students in an Online Class

The Showcase is hosted by the Office of Assessment and Accreditation, Center for Teaching, and Learning, Atkins Library, and Communication Across the Curriculum.
