FSCJ has the best and brightest faculty who are committed to providing meaningful and rewarding educational experiences for our students.
As a way to continue the 2015–16 theme of “engagement,” Dr. Angela Browning, will be highlighting the extraordinary work of a faculty member each month to share his/her teaching and engagement techniques, professional development, community service, and unique College contributions.
This month’s spotlight is Audrey Antee, professor of English at Kent Campus.
Engaging with and supporting students:
- Infuses courses with 8 key principles of student success (as taught by On Course, a group that designed these principles to promote student success and retention).
- Uses “Educreations,” a whiteboard app that allows her quickly to make and send videos to students who have questions. The video response allows students to keep the material and to view it at their own pace.
Reimagining writing assignments:
- Asks students to write for a variety of audiences and purposes: develop a website regarding services offered to students at FSCJ; develop a draft of an essay into another medium such as a poem, comic strip, brochure, video or work of fiction.
