The Faculty Resource Room in BTC 1052

  • Meet the Mentors -- Includes the current mentor schedule as well as information about each mentor.

The Center for Effective Teaching was pleased to announce the opening of the Faculty Resource Room, located in the Bulmer Telecommunications Center, Room 1052 in the fall of 2002. The Faculty Resource Room was organized with the support of President John Buono, Dr. Carolyn Curtis, Information Technology Services, and many others.

The room gives faculty a location to experiment with technology similar to what is available in campus classrooms. Several staff members serve as mentors to assist faculty with pedagogy, teaching techniques, and technology.
