Connecting campuses to promote excellence in math and science

Faculty Development Workshops

Faculty development workshops are opportunities for faculty to coordinate and/or participate in meetings with topics ranging from disciplinary curricula and research, uses of technologies and instrumentation, field work, grant writing, and career development. Workshops can be used to connect faculty at consortium campuses to disseminate products or ideas produced with other funding, to share best practices related to pedagogy, curriculum development or undergraduate research programs, or to establish disciplinary or interdisciplinary collaborations.

Most workshops start with a dinner on Friday evening and end Sunday around noon and often occur during the academic year although summer workshops are possible. Workshops are held at any of the consortium campuses and the director’s office usually helps coordinate the logistics of travel, lodging, and meals. The workshop’s faculty hosts help coordinate the program and invite the speakers or facilitators. The budget per workshop is generally limited to $15,000.
