Media Support for Education Students and Faculty:
A company called Alexander Street Press is in the business of collecting the very best video resources in different topical areas and offering them to universities for curriculum support. Faulkner has enjoyed access to one of their products, American History in Video, for some time, and this past year we have added Education in Video. This new product is the first online collection of streaming video developed specifically for training and developing teachers. It gives education faculty, students, and in-service teachers a single source for the best research-based professional development video resources available. Everything from Alexander Street Press is cross-searchable.
Exciting language software:
Mango Languages can make you conversationally fluent in any of the twelve languages to which Faulkner students, faculty, and staff members have access.
