The Faculty First Program is a an annual instructional development program that supports the UTK faculty's effective
uses of technology in teaching. This is accomplished by forming a long-term partnership between a faculty member and OIT to develop digital instructional materials or to reshape an entire course. The program runs from February to December.
You offer the content and serve as a subject matter expert, and OIT staff will do the development for you, incorporating the appropriate technology into your course. The OIT assistance may include instructional design, web and multimedia design and development, video production, and technical assistance. Many of the Faculty First past projects resulted in online lectures, web-based interactive learning materials, instructional videos, and transformed technology-enhanced, blended and online courses.

This project will develop two videos that will be used to test the effectiveness of a progressive learning system on student retention of course material. Students will watch videos multiple times as they progress through 3 stages of learning: observation, understanding of concept, and application of technical terminology
The purpose of this project is to develop an online, integrated, and interactive manual that uses multimedia to describe and illustrate basic surgery skills. The integrated manual would use various graphical control elements to allow the user to select the level of detail desired and to control visual materials such as video clips and illustrations.
The plan is to develop a new graduate level online course in the Comparative and Experimental Medicine program titled‘Pre-Harvest Safety of Foods of Animal Origin’. The new course is intended for the UTK and UTIA students interested in food safety and public health.
The objective of this project is to produce a digital instructional video for veterinary students. The primary users of this material will include the second year veterinary students enrolled inveterinary anesthesiology- VM832 course, and the fourth year veterinary students enrolled in clinical anesthesia rotation- VM870. In addition, this material will be useful for all veterinary students at any stage of their curriculum, as a useful resource of anesthesia.
