    Fall 2015 Application Process

    Here are the steps in applying for the chance to become a Faculty Development Associate for 2015-2016. The due date(s) for Applications will be announced by the first day of class. 

    1. A team leader should participate in one or more faculty development sessions or activities in the previous or current semester.

    2. Form a team of 1-3 other faculty members (may also include support staff such as IT personnel) and submit a brief online proposal to attend a conference or workshop together, or engage in a team professional development activity. Your team’s proposal will be rated on its connections to the high impact initiatives, its degree of collaborative and innovative ideas, and its potential attractiveness to other faculty. 

    3. Members from teams selected by the Faculty Development Committee and the Provost's Council will have up to $1500 each to cover the costs of attending their conference. The number of teams selected will be contingent on available funding.

    4. Incorporate ideas from the conference into your own teaching and/or scholarship – as a collaborative team, or as a learning community of individuals who meet on a regular basis.

    5. As a team, work with the Faculty Development Center to organize and facilitate a workshop or series of sessions to create an “ongoing conversation” on campus. These will be scheduled for Fall 2015 or Spring 2016, depending on when your conference or team professional development activity occurs.
