Mid-Term Student Feedback Sessions
We offer help to all EMU faculty and lecturers with mid-term student feedback sessions. Through these sessions, we aim to help instructors gather input from their students while they still have time to implement change during the semester.

Teaching Blog

Bruce K. Nelson Faculty Development Center

The Teaching Blog aims to share, with the campus community and beyond, a series of posts focusing on a wide range of teaching issues. This may focus on pedagogical approaches, issues in addressing the challenges that our students face, sharing resources available on campus, or beyond. We intend for this blog to serve as a cornerstone for anything and everything that may be of use to students or faculty. Living in a siloed universe, as most of us do, we have much to learn from others with whom we might not often discuss the challenges and opportunities around teaching and learning.
