IDS offers a variety of resources that include the IDS Learning Library, the Instructional Development Newsletter, and online links to websites, bibliographies, and articles on teaching and learning.


IDS Teaching and Learning Library

The IDS Library offers a wide variety of resources (books, journals, films) on a multitude of teaching and learning topics, faculty survival in the academy, internationalizing- interculturalizing the curriculum, and on-line teaching. You are welcome to browse the library, seek out resources on a particular topic or get help from us in identifying the resources that be most useful to you. Take a look!


The Instructional Development Newsletter

IDS newsletters contain articles written information on such topics as course and student assessment, classroom climate, the first day of class, testing tips, classroom assessment techniques, classroom technology, grading, and a host of pragmatic teaching strategies. (Sample newsletters from the past can be provided upon request.)

In addition to IDS and faculty-produced articles, the newsletter features reports on campus teaching and learning enterprises such as UMD's popular Tech Camps, accounts from faculty and students who worked together on UROP (Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program) projects, news about bringing graduate teaching assistants up to speed in the classroom, information on weighing the worth of information from the Web, and reviews of fresh additions to the IDS Library.

UMD faculty are encouraged and invited to contribute articles to The Instructional Development Newsletter. Contact the editor, LeAne Rutherford, if you wish to participate in this publication.
