Everything You Need In One Place
The CFC strives to aid our faculty members through the promotion of an established blend of pedagogy, technology, and research.
We support success in the classroom and continuing professional development with activities, resources, and consultations.
We want Western Carolina University faculty to know they are a part of an academic community where there are continuous open discussions and support for teaching and learning activities.
The Coulter Faculty Commons, in collaboration with the Office of Research Administration, recognizes that the faculty of Western Carolina University engage in multiple forms of scholarship. The CFC research division can assist faculty, staff, and graduate teaching assistants with research design and research methods for publications, grant proposals, dissertations, theses, and other projects. This support is provided through consultations and scholarship tools and resources.
The Coulter Faculty Commons Educational Development team assist faculty with all aspects of teaching. Consultation topics include, but are not limited to, course analysis, rubrics, syllabus and schedule construction, Scholarship of Teaching and Learning projects, Universal Design for Learning (UDL), and hybrid course design. Consultations may also cover work-life balance and other issues related to faculty support.
The Coulter Faculty Commons Educational Technology team provide support and assistance with many forms of classroom technology tools, digital media, and online learning techniques. With the ever-changing world of technology, it is often very difficult to maintain proficiency across all platforms. The CFC Ed Tech team is here to help instructors deal with the changing technology and help them to utilize the right tools to create engaging and inspiring courses.
