January 2023 Tuesday Tips

31st January 2023

Dear faculty, 
 
I am glad no one noticed that I missed the Tuesday Tip last week….. next time I miss one, you get extra credit if you notice and email me!! 
 
Overall, though, I think that this new tool we have in Faculty Development was worth waiting for… so let me unveil it (virtually) to you! 
 
The FDEV team worked incredibly hard last semester to turn our original FDEV Virtual library into a searchable tool that can provide a much more interactive experience to those faculty who are looking for some resources for their research or their classroom. 
 
The new FDEV Virtual Library(opens in new window) allows you to search books by topic (assessment, curriculum, equity & diversity, etc.) or by title, and we have included a thumbnail photo for each book, in case you have more of a visual memory like me! 
 
In partnership with the Meriam Library, we have selected a list of electronic publications that cover key areas of faculty interests. The best part? all books are accessible to our campus community via the Ebook Central database so you can access them through a simple login (and the same applies to your students, in case you want to assign some readings in your classes). 
 
We hope you will take some time to explore these resources and let us know if there are books we should include in our virtual library!
