    Gale Rhodes, associate university provost and executive director of the Delphi Center for Teaching and Learning, has the following responsibilities:

    1. Provide oversight for the SACS QEP which is Ideas to Action. Ideas to Action staff work with colleges/schools as well as staff departments to assist them with infusing critical thinking into the curriculum. They provide workshops as well as individual consultations with faculty.
    2. Assist units with putting entire academic programs online. The Office of Online Learning works closely with department chairs and individual faculty members with recruitment, retention, student services as well as helping with a plan of action for getting programs online.
    3. Provide training and faculty development for faculty members putting courses online. This office facilitates several intensive workshops teaching faculty members how to put their classes online as well as assisting them with both course design and effective teaching skills.
    4. Work closely with Information Technology to support the learning management system, Blackboard, so that it is an effective system in which faculty teach their online classes. Information technology provides technical support while the Delphi Center provides application support of Blackboard.
    5. Provide faculty development opportunities for faculty teaching face to face classes. This unit does a series of faculty learning communities, all day workshops, dine and discover workshops and one on one consultations with faculty to assist them in developing strong teaching skills in their classes.
    6. Schedule meetings and conferences on Shelby Campus using both the Founders Union building and Burhans Hall. Both of these facilities have renovated meeting space along with the opportunity to utlize conferencing staff to fully support conferences that are scheduled on Shelby Campus or the greater Louisville area.

There are public offerings as well opportunities for in-house development if businesses would like for the staff in this unit to work with their individual staff members onsite.
