Faculty Focus Video Series

Faculty utilize many different techniques to engage students in the classroom.  In this video series we will interview instructors employing creative or innovative teaching methods in the classroom. In addition to the interview, we will have a glimpse into the classroom to see the interaction between students as well as the instructor. Take a look at our first video in the series as we follow Adonna Rometo in "Digestion in Action: Active Learning in a Physiology Lecture."
