The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) is seeking nominations for faculty associates to help full-time and part-time faculty enrich the teaching and learning process. Each campus will have a faculty associate appointed for the 2012-2013 academic year who will join the current campus faculty associate. The two-year appointment carries three ESH per semester for a commitment of approximately 10 hours/week.
Those nominated need to possess the ability to design and deliver workshops that focus on pedagogical strategies aimed at improving student success. In addition, faculty associates must understand the professional development needs of the faculty at their campus. Faculty associates will be regular presenters in the CTL's Professional Development Program for New Faculty. It is expected that faculty associates will have experience presenting for the CTL or presenting at regional or national conferences. Regular office hours will be held for faculty seeking assistance from the Faculty Associates.
Nominations can come from deans, chairs, faculty councils or faculty members themselves and should be submitted by May 1 to Dr. Michael Mills, interim director of the CTL. Use the attached form to submit a nomination.
The CTL Transition Advisory Group and the interim director will review the nominations before a decision is announced. Each nomination must include why the faculty member is qualified to be a CTL Faculty Associate. All nominations must also include a comment of support from the faculty member's dean.
While the deadline for nominations is fast approaching, the Advisory Group is excited about the possibilities offered by this campus-centered faculty support model.
