Impact on Faculty

Faculty perception of EnACT~PTD project trainings and activities revealed high levels of satisfaction that met or exceeded their expectations. Specifically, faculty offered praise for the UDL Workshop (88% satisfaction rate); praise for the FLC forum (89% satisfaction); and noted the overall importance of their course changes in light of the teaching and learning process (97% noted as important). Of particular interest, 72% of the faculty stated they would have been “unlikely” or “not made” course changes had they not participated in EnACT~PTD. 

In a follow-up qualitative study, faculty were interviewed to gain insight into their perceptions regarding EnACT~PTD processes on their respective campuses. Key findings from these interviews revealed that the FLC process was valued as a tool to “improve the quality and effectiveness of teaching and improving accessibility for all students.” As well, faculty praised the UDL process as a way to “reach everyone regardless of learning style” and that the overall format was valued by the participants given that they “clearly see the benefits to student learning.” Commonly, the highest value was placed on how FLC members offer support and insight to each other on “how to teach a class so that information and conceptualization of course concepts is universally accessible to all students via diverse teaching methods.”


The Research Briefs included in this section offer a more in-depth look at the impact of the EnACT~PTD faculty development model and related resources.
