Pathways for Faculty
Pathways for Faculty are educational experiences designed exclusively for faculty. The intent of Pathways for Faculty is to deepen and enrich the teaching practice of faculty by focusing on an aspect of their teaching. Pathways are Faculty Learning Communities and operate as a cohort.
Faculty are experts in their field; however, many faculty haven’t had the opportunity to dive deep into teaching. For faculty who want to develop a richer, more research-guided teaching practice we present five unique pathways of faculty development. The pathways are designed to give faculty access to a community of practice, or cohort, that nurtures and develops their teaching practice while staying focused on research guided principles. Faculty commit a certain amount of time and are supported with guidance, resources, and support.
Faculty will improve their teaching practice, receive professional enrichment, and build a stronger community of professional practice amongst their fellow faculty.
Pathways for Faculty options are:
- The Highly Engaged, Highly Interactive Instructor – (2 semesters)
- Hybrid/Online Teaching & Learning – (1 semester)
- Diversity and the Inclusive Classroom – (2 semesters)
- The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning – (2 semesters)
- Classroom Assessment – (2 semester)
Faculty should expect to meet once a month with their cohort (a total of eight meetings over a year, or four meetings over a semester). There is outside reading and writing, and faculty will develop materials that can be used towards their own teaching evaluation or portfolios. Faculty may also wish to pursue writing a piece for a journal based on the work they do in their pathway.
Remote attendance for faculty at regional campuses is available.
