Using Multimedia to Engage Faculty in Development Opportunities: A Project for Incorporating Reading Comprehension Across Disciplines
Current research at all levels of schooling emphasizes the importance of effective reading comprehension as well as the challenges instructors face in teaching it. In 2007, the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) awarded The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) a grant to develop 14 online professional development modules. These modules provide reading comprehension strategies to college-level faculty who are teaching entry-level college courses across disciplines. The modules were designed to maximize interaction and provide “take aways” for participants.
