Cyber Professor is the faculty professional development program through which community
college faculty learn to integrate Internet-based resources in their
courses. Designed specifically for community colleges' use in preservice
education in the areas of science, mathematics, language arts, and
educational technology, the program's goal is to help community college
faculty who teach preservice teachers model effective technology-based
instruction in order to improve student engagement and achievement in core
courses. Savvy Cyber Professor is based on materials developed by Stevens
Institute of Technology that have impacted over 10,000 K-12 teachers and
used by faculty at Maricopa and Cuyahoga Community Colleges and Miami Dade
College. As an outcome of this unique 26-hour program, combining online and
face-to-face instruction, faculty create "Real World Learning Objects"
that they can use to enhance and strengthen their courses.
