Contribute to Faculty Voices on Teaching

Faculty Voices on Teaching highlights successful ideas and strategies from instructors throughout the Cornell community. Faculty have the opportunity to create a short video (up to 3 minutes) that answers the question, "What is one thing you tried that worked well, and how did you know it worked?"

We see this program as part of the ongoing dialogue across the university about ways to enhance student learning. While many other programs seek to highlight large-scale course or curriculum design projects, this is an opportunity to explore small ideas that have had a real impact on teaching & learning. We invite you to share your ideas and strategies, and in the process, gain insight from those ideas shared by your peers.

How does it work?

Contributing to Faculty Voices on Teaching requires only that you have a teaching idea that you found successful, in your experience. We do not intend for you to spend a lot of time producing a video of your strategy, but simply to tell the story of "what worked." We collect the videos you create, and post them in the Faculty Voices on Teaching section of our Teaching Spotlight.
