Every year our Lucas Center for Faculty Development staff attends the POD Network Annual Meeting. POD focuses on faculty development and offers attendees a wealth of information. Our center was a finalist for the POD Innovation Award and we won! Such an honor. Here’s a link to an article in the POD newsletter I wrote about our winning innovation called “boosting” and how it works.
It’s interesting how the mind works and how much information we quickly forget! We remember only 40% of what was taught and discussed one day later and after 5 days only remember 20%. For that reason, we use e-mail boosts in our work with faculty and now faculty use boosts with their students. Visit our Lucas Center site for examples of our boosts.
