About Faculty Focus

Through its free e-newsletter and dedicated website, Faculty Focus publishes articles on effective teaching strategies for the college classroom — face-to-face, online, blended, or flipped. It’s also home to The Teaching Professor Blog, written by Maryellen Weimer, PhD. In December 2016, we launched Faculty Focus Premium, a rich repository of teaching tools and resources that deliver fresh ideas, keen insights, and best practices.
