E-Campus eight-week Faculty Development Online Course Development and Teaching Certificate Program is scheduled to begin on Monday, Sept. 9, and run through Friday, Nov. 1.

This is an intensive hybrid professional development program for EKU faculty (adjunct faculty and staff are welcome). You will come away with a much better understanding of what it takes to create a well-designed online course and the pedagogy that goes behind it to provide our students with the best learning experience possible.


We have a few spots left. Join us for an extremely beneficial learning experience in the world of online teaching and learning.

Event Date: September 09; 1 p.m.
Location: Commonwealth Hall 1801
Cost: Free

Reading scientific literature without considering figures is like buying expensive concert tickets, standing in line for hours to get the best spot, and then walking out without seeing the performance. Figures in scientific literature are not embellishments; they are the main event. However, our abilities to value and read figures vary. In this session we will explore data-driven, accessible strategies to support science majors learning to read scientific figures critically in texts and discipline-specific literature, and to support non-science majors learning to read scientific figures critically to become science-literate citizens.

Participants will be introduced to the needs of the universities "breakaway learners" through the work of Dr. Karen Gross's book “Breakaway Learners: Strategies for Post-Secondary Success with At-Risk Students." They will learn how postsecondary institutions can change breakaway students outcomes for success by helping to incorporate the concept of elasticity into our work with them. This presentation will be through the lens of working with student parents, but the concepts are interchangeable for any breakaway learner.
