The ET project is a university-wide initiative that aims to enhance our processes for evaluating and rewarding excellence in teaching at FIU. Here you will find resources developed specifically to support faculty in their efforts to collect evidence for the evaluation of their teaching.
Whether developing a new course, teaching a preexisting course or updating a course you’ve taught for years here you’ll find resources curated specifically to help you take a structured, thoughtful, and evidenced based approach to course design.
What is learning?
Learning is a process, not a product; but because this process takes place in the mind, we can only infer that it has occurred from students’ products or performances.
Adjunct faculty are integral members of our FIU teaching community. Every semester more than 500 adjuncts teach at FIU, and it is CAT’s goal to provide faculty development and community building opportunities for adjunct faculty through workshops, reading groups, consultations, and online resources.
The center’s library houses over 500 titles on a wide variety of topics related to teaching and learning. FIU faculty, adjuncts and faculty development partners are invited to visit the library, peruse our collection of “CAT Favorites” and borrow books for up to 45 days.
FIU is committed to the CORE values:
Responsibility, Truth, Freedom, Respect and Excellence.
Because of the growing need in higher education for educational technology tools that will engage students and enhance the classroom learning experience, CAT has put together this collection of suggested programs, apps, and tools for FIU faculty. We encourage everyone to use these resources as a way to explore new ideas when combining the best pedagogical practices with the latest in educational technology.
Here you will find our collection of teaching and learning resources, which include books, articles, sites, and much more. We have categorized all of the entries in this repository as being evidence-based, learner-centered, or inclusive to align with FIU’s vision of teaching excellence.
