Improving Teaching and Learning Effectiveness with LEC’s Educator Competency Framework
Facilitator: Marti Snyder, Ph.D., PMP, SPHR, CHSE, Director of Faculty Professional Development, Learning and Educational Center, Professor, Abraham S. Fischler College of Education and School of Criminal Justice
Session Description: The Learning and Educational Center’s (LEC’s) Educator Competency Framework can be used to help educators improve their teaching and learning effectiveness. This framework comprises five competency categories with associated knowledge, skills, and attitudes that we believe all NSU educators should possess. The five categories are: acting with integrity, embracing belonging, equity, diversity, and inclusion, creating learner-centered environments, designing effective learning experiences, and using innovative teaching strategies and technology.
In this session, we will introduce the framework and discuss ways faculty, staff, and administrators can use it to guide their professional development activities. We will also share just-in-time educational resources that align with each competency category. Participants will walk away with a better understanding of the framework and how it can be used to guide their own professional development and improve their teaching and learning practices.
