The Faculty Development Center provides a centralized place to support the teaching of all EMU faculty, lecturers, teaching GAs, and student success staff. The FDC promotes excellence in teaching, learning, and scholarly activities in accordance with the core values of respect, inclusiveness, care, and commitment. The Center grounds itself in awareness and support for cultural diversity and community-building.
Two student workers at the FDC, Jessi Kwek and Hannah LaFleur, have had the chance to interview dozens of our most impressive educators who teach here at EMU. They have learned a lot from their conversations, and have noticed certain qualities that make these educators as great as they are. They compiled these qualities, and other lessons they have learned, into this document which offers insight into the teaching practices and philosophies of the most impactful faculty and staff we have at EMU.
