Located on the lower level of the James B. Duke Library, the Education Curriculum Center houses professional education resources including k-12 textbooks, juvenile literature, and curriculum materials that support the preparation of initial and continuing educators. In addition, an open classroom and workroom are located adjacent to the curriculum collection for use by faculty and students. The curriculum collection is overseen by the library staff who work collaboratively with the Education Department to acquire and maintain resources that are current and reflect best instructional practices. Go here for some great resources. Hipp Hall 205 - Education Department Methods Classroom

The methods classroom/laboratory provides a large flexible space for teaching and learning. The room makes available numerous resources for students including 26 wireless laptops. Half of the room is devoted to science laboratory space where certification candidates can conduct experiments and practice science lessons. The remaining half of the room allows for a variety of arrangements supporting lectures, discussions, and cooperative teaching. The methods room incorporates science and social studies curriculum materials, as well as digital microscopes and computer interfaced lab equipment. The classroom was provided by the Arthur Vining Davis Foundation.

Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL)

CTL is a resource devoted to providing pedagogical strategies and technical support for faculty and students at Furman University. CTL sponsors opportunities for faculty to participate in events, workshops, and symposia that promote reflection on curricular innovations and engagement in the scholarship of teaching and learning.

Kappa Delta Pi

Furman University has an active chapter of Kappa Delta Pi (KDP), an international honor society in education. Each October, new members (undergraduate, graduate, and community) are inducted into the chapter. Members must renew their memberships each year to remain active.

Grants and Sponsored Programs

Funding from corporations, foundations and federal and state agencies increased from $2.6 million in fiscal year 1999-2000 to $11.8 million in fiscal year 2004-05. This funding contributes significantly to faculty and undergraduate research, scholarships, internships, capital improvements, and equipment acquisitions, as well as endowments for these and other purposes. The breadth and scope of grant funding is expected to increase rapidly as Furman strengthens its position as one of our nation's premier baccalaureate liberal arts institutions.
