Learn More About Faculty Development
Faculty Development's mission is to provide relevant and thought-provoking programming to support all faculty in their teaching, scholarship, service, and leadership journeys. Our programming and partnerships are informed by equity-mindedness, technology-enriched best practices, and data-informed inquiry. We seek a supportive culture of shared power that engages with the well-being and success of both faculty and students
FacDev Base Team
The core team is comprised of our Director, Associate Director, Special Projects Director, Instructional Designers, and Administrative Analyst/Specialist.
These faculty work closely with the Faculty Development office to support ongoing projects and programs. Faculty Affiliates include our Faculty Developers, Faculty Fellows, and Facilitators.
Faculty Peer Reviewers
These faculty conduct short reviews of teaching artifacts (e.g., a syllabus, Canvas course, assignment, class session) for faculty members who are intrinsically interested in gaining formative feedback on how to improve their teaching and relationship with students.
New Faculty Foundations Committee
This is a year-long University level service committee convened to help co-design and implement our redesigned New Faculty Foundations events and resources for newly hired tenure-track and lecturer faculty to meet their needs.
Probationary Faculty Grant Review Committee
The members of the Probationary Faculty Grant Review Committee are composed of one representative from each college and serve for a 2-year term. Each year, the members work to review the 30-50+ applications through an anonymous process in order to choose the 13-15 winners (numbers fluctuate each year depending on funding).
Active Learning Ambassadors
An interdisciplinary team of faculty who are passionate about promoting active learning techniques in the classroom. They meet monthly and host workshops, open to the campus community to attend.
Graduates of our eLearning programming who are enthusiastically interested in sharing their knowledge and experience merging pedagogy and technology within their departments/colleges as well as in our eLearning programs.
