The Teaching Circle Program promotes faculty development by providing interdisciplinary opportunities for discussion, and experiences that enhance student learning. Teaching Circles are small groups of faculty who meet during an academic year or years. Some circles organize around a common theme or problem and keep to a set agenda, while others maintain a free-form discussion format. Some previously formed teaching circles include:

  • Humanities in the 21st Century
  • Obligatory Supplemental Instruction
  • Teaching and Learning
  • International Awareness
  • SOAPS - (Strategies for Online Active Participation with Students)
  • GeorgiaView - Desire2Learn
  • Study Abroad

Teaching Circle Program offers the following incentives to the faculty who participate. Faculty members who attend at least three teaching circle meetings receive $100 credit that can be used for such things as travel to professional conferences, books or software to enhance student learning, or book donations to James earl Carter Library. Attendance at six or more meetings qualifies a faculty member for an additional $100 credit. At times, selected workshops and one-time events are counted as teaching circles when such are deemed to enhance student learning.

GSW faculty can access more information by going to GeorgiaView and entering the Teaching Circle Portal.

Lecture Capture/ Podcasting at GSW

The University System of Georgia partnered with Georgia College and State University to develop the USG Podcasting Server. Here, USG faculty and staff can store podcasts for viewers to subscribe to and download. Georgia Southwestern State University’s liaison to the USG Podcasting Server is Bob Slenker, GSW’s Instructional Technology Coordinator. To request an account on this server or to log into your account, simply go here: 

http://podcasting.gcsu.edu/4DCGI/Podcasting/univ_page.html?UnivID_Str=37&Ran=30638 

Included in the server interface is a great, how-to manual on creating podcasts, podcasting channels, uploading podcasts and how to let viewers know how to access them.

In addition, Frank Lowney with Georgia College and State University published a very comprehensive paper called “The 5 Ps of Educational Podcasting” describing what podcasts are, how they are distributed and how one can create them:

Included in this comprehensive paper are also links to particular applications and services related to creating and distributing podcasts.

So far, faculty and staff at GSW have been using programs such as Camtasia Studio and Adobe Captivate to create podcasts via “live screen capture” or have been using inexpensive Flip video cameras to simply record their lectures and easily upload the video files to the USG podcasting server.

For more information on getting started with podcasting and lecture capture at GSW, contact Bob Slenker at robert.slenker@gsw.edu or call 931-2922.
