CAFDN is a non-profit consortium of colleges and universities dedicated
to promoting the improvement of college teaching by providing a convenient
and affordable way for professionals to exchange information and best
practices in the field.
CAFDN has been in existence since 1996. Our membership includes faculty
development professionals from all types of schools throughout our area,
covering the full range from community colleges to research universities.
We have found it most helpful to learn from each other not just despite,
but also because of, the differences of our institutions. The diverse
requirements of our home campuses have allowed us to look at issues
from new perspectives and develop a profound sense of collegiality.
Over the years we have debated every important topic that faculty and
institutions of higher learning are facing: From effective grading practices
to interdisciplinary teaching, from active learning to the role of part-time
instructors, and from faculty evaluation to learning communities.
