Global Faculty Development Resources
The goal of Regent's QEP is to increase the global competence of our students. For that to occur, faculty too will grow in their knowledge, understanding and application of global competence. The Center for Teaching & Learning would like to provide a directory of related faculty development resources. If you would like to add more, email your resources to iTeach@regent.edu.
Be sure to also visit the Center for Christian Thought and Action.
