The Exchange

The Exchange, the biannual publication of the New England Faculty Development Consortium, is designed to provide a forum for members to publish work and exchange ideas related to our shared endeavor of enhancing faculty development and teaching effectiveness. We are particularly happy to receive articles about practical ideas and innovative programs related to teaching and faculty development. We will also publish reviews of books, films and software, notices of local or state-based faculty or teaching development opportunities, and updates on campus-based initiatives or ideas that may prove useful to members. Subscriptions are free to members of the NEFDC.
