One on One Services

We invite you to become a volunteer to your FSU colleagues who are seeking assistance in your area of expertise.

Background

Ferris State University is a community of experts and willing volunteers. To capitalize on these good qualities in an effort to improve teaching and learning, the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning would like to build its one-on-one services. The purpose of the One-on-One Faculty Services program is for expert faculty and staff to provide one-on-one assistance to faculty and others on a wide range of teaching and learning issues, methods, tools, etc. For each service, a faculty or staff expert in that area will volunteer to consult individually with those requesting assistance.

Example

Here is an example of an actual service that is available to you:

Beyond Google
Expert: Kristy Motz, FLITE Library Instruction Coordinator

Kristy has worked one-on-one with others and has taught groups of faculty and students to become more efficient searchers of quality and useful resources and information on the web.

Description of the service

You may be someone who Googles his or her way to information on the web. There are, perhaps to your surprise, different search options and tools to help you become a more efficient searcher. I would be happy to help you use the newest search engines, directories, and metasearch engines to find your way to the best resources on the web.

Kristy is available for one-on-one assistance or general classroom instruction.
