Ed Neal
Director of Faculty Development, Center for Teaching and Learning
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Ed Neal has worked in higher education since 1968, first as a professor of Russian history and, for the last 19 years, as an educational consultant at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In 1979 he created the faculty development office at UNC. When the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) was established in 1987, faculty development became part of that organization.

As director of faculty development at CTL, he is responsible for programs that help faculty members and graduate teaching assistants become more effective teachers. He leads workshops and seminars on teaching, writes articles and monographs on teaching issues, develops teaching evaluation systems, and serves on University committees that deal with teaching and assessment issues. Much of his work involves individual consultations with instructors, working with them to plan courses, develop new instructional techniques, design exams and student assignments, and interpret the results of student evaluations and peer reviews.

Ed Neal is also active in regional and national faculty development organizations. Currently he is serving on the executive board of the Professional and Organizational Development (POD) Network. He is the editor of the Journal of Staff, Program, and Organizational Development and serves on the editorial board of The National Teaching and Learning Forum.
