    Facilities and Amenities

    The Faculty Development Center is located on the north side of Livingston Lord Library, and serves as a gathering and collaborative space to foster excellence and continuous improvement in teaching and learning. It includes a Coordinator’s office, a multipurpose classroom/workshop space for up to 40 people, a conference room, a study carrel with numerous power outlets for computer usage (bring your own laptop or check one out from IT, who are our neighbors and share space with us) and an informal space for faculty interaction. There is a coffee/tea counter with a sink, microwave, crock pot, and a small fridge. Food and money donations are accepted to keep the pantry stocked.

    Please stop by!

    While we do have scheduled sessions each week, we also have unscheduled, informal space for faculty to visit at any time during our open hours. Please stop by to meet with other faculty, get some work done in a quiet setting, or just take a break in your day.

    Faculty Development Associate Teams for Fall 2017 Announced – Team 1

    Team Members: Mary Dosch and Brad Bachmeier Conference/Team Activity: Mosaic Artwork Instruction/Guidance from local artist Why did your team select this conference? With the goal of promoting more visual art on campus that represents MSUM and our students while also learning new art techniques, we would like to combine the efforts of the Visual Arts and the Psychology Programs. We already share endeavors offering the Art Therapy minor. What are your plans for collaboration? Our team, along with an MSUM Alumni artist who has done several mosaics, would like to create a mosaic on campus that would capture the ideas of Service Learning and Global Learning at MSUM.  Students that traveled to the Dominican Republic this past summer completed 5 days of Service Learning at the Mariposa Foundation, working on several mosaics. The Mariposa Foundation has the mission of empowering young girls through education to help end generational poverty. The  materials needed in our climate as well as the elaborate artwork that we would be doing need  further guidance. At this point, we do not know exactly where on campus we would place this art, but we do have administrative support.
