Effective & Efficient Teaching Workshop

Feb 28th

10:00 - 2:00


IFD Spring Speaker: Dr. Chavella Pittman


This workshop shares the basics of planning and executing a stress-free course. Through research-based tips & exercises and opportunities for questions, and feedback from Dr. Pittman, participants will develop the skills needed to teach effectively with less time and stress. At the end of the workshop, participants will have: weekly course topics, lesson plans for the first two weeks of a course, and course assignments. Each of these key course components will be chosen and designed by participants to increase teaching effectiveness while also reducing preparation and grading time.


The workshop is ideal for new or experienced teachers at research or teaching universities who want to reduce the anxiety and/or time associated with teaching. Participants can revise a current course or plan a new one. 

Please RSVP by February 14th to Nancy Monticello at to reserve a spot. If you would like more information, please contact Dr. Douglas Harvey, IFD Director, at



The Institute for Faculty Development (IFD) at Stockton University is a resource to support effective pedagogy and productive scholarship for all faculty members. The IFD works with faculty to develop services and resources to assist them in the pursuit of their goals for excellence in teaching, research, and service. Assessment of student learning is inexorably linked to good teaching, as the former is a measure of the latter. The Institute for Faculty Development conducts workshops and offers the following in-house resources on teaching, scholarship, and student learning.

Peer observations of teaching 


A colleague trained to observe and provide formative feedback on your teaching in both face-to-face and online classes will provide you with a summary of your strengths as an instructor and give you ideas for enhancing your practice going forward. These observations are confidential, and you may choose whether or not to use them in official evaluations of your performance.

Faculty Fellows

A program that supports peer-to-peer consultations between faculty.


Teaching Circles

Small groups of faculty who collaborate together to develop expertise around a professionally relevant topic. Typically meeting once per month during the fall and spring semesters 

Seminars and Workshops

The IFD sponsors regular events designed to provide faculty with information and training on a range of topics relevant to teaching, scholarship and service. Other campus offices also offer events related to faculty development. Check our calendar of events for information on dates, times, and places.
