  • Encourage COD faculty to implement diverse teaching and learning strategies that accommodate the learning styles of students and promote both acquisition and application of knowledge and understanding
  • Encourage the design of learning opportunities that acknowledge, draw upon and are enriched by student diversity
  • Foster the development of learning environments that create an atmosphere of diversity and inclusion, respect and understanding
  • Facilitate the development and sharing of teaching strategies and assessment tools that align student learning with program outcomes
  • Encourage COD faculty to stay current in their discipline through activities such as attending professional conferences, participating in research, and sharing disciplinary insights with the college community
  • Encourage COD faculty to continuously examine their teaching effectiveness with respect to student learning
  • Provide opportunities to keep current in the scholarship of teaching and learning in all modes of delivery
