    Spring 2017 Application Process

    The goal of the Faculty Development Associates program is to provide a well-supported opportunity to foster collaboration among faculty members. This program addresses all parts of the center’s mission: The Faculty Development Center facilitates collective faculty efforts to collaborate and innovate, and offers opportunities to increase individual faculty effectiveness, engagement, and professional well-being.

    Here are the steps in applying for the chance to become a Faculty Development Associate for Spring/Summer 2017. The due date for this round of applications is Friday, April 7th.

    Proposals will be rated using the following Rubric: FDA Proposal Rubric

    1. Select a team leader. Your team leader must have had prior involvement in one or more Faculty Development Center activities within the past year, either as a facilitator or as a participant.
    2. Form a team of 2-4 faculty members (you may also include additional support staff such as IT or ITS personnel) and submit a brief online proposal (use the form provided below) to attend a conference or workshop together, or engage in some sort of team professional development activity. Your team’s proposal will be rated based on its connections to MSUM’s strategic plan, the degree of collaboration and innovation in its aims, and the potential attractiveness of the proposed follow-up content to other faculty.
    3. Members from teams selected by the Faculty Development Committee will receive up to $1500 each to help cover the cost of attending their conference or workshop, or to provide support for their professional development activity. The number of teams selected will be contingent upon available funding.
    4. Selected teams will work with the Faculty Development Center to organize and facilitate a workshop or some other appropriate follow-up activity to create an “ongoing impact” on the campus community. These will be scheduled for Fall 2017 or Spring 2018.
    5. If you would like assistance in preparing your proposal or if you have any questions about the application process, please email and we would be glad to arrange a time to meet with you. We can help connect those with ideas for a team to other interested faculty members, and we will work with you to help you refine your proposal.
