Abstract: Faculty development (FD) is an important activity that helps faculty members of an academic institution to provide quality education to students while helping fulfill the institution's missions and support its recommended approaches to teaching and learning. Creating useful learning materials and modules are crucial in implementing a flipped learning approach in sessions that comprise an FD program. With sustainability and scalability in mind, electronic materials such as eBooks and web media are useful for distributing these materials. This paper describes the design and development of a website that was used for the FD program of the International Christian University (ICU) during the fall of 2017. A thematic analysis of the initial feedback of the first batch of users as well as external reviewers is also presented. Furthermore, a rough measure of the usability and usefulness of the website as an Open Educational Resource (OER) is reported.
