Faculty Development

First University

Otis is committed to supporting faculty in their pursuit of excellence in teaching effectiveness, professional activities, and collegiality. Faculty Development activities are organized throughout the college in various venues:

    Academic Assembly

    Programs of Study

    Teaching Learning Center (TLC)

    Provost's Office

The Faculty Development Committee acts as a central advisory and/or coordinating body for these activities. Faculty Development Grants are available to support projects and activities including, but not limited to:

    Teaching effectiveness related to diverse student learning styles, student struggles, and educating the whole student

    Professional activities such as research, funding for supplies/materials, or participation in conferences/workshops

    College activities such as building departmental teamwork, forging trans-disciplinary avenues of investigation, and fostering communication across traditional boundaries.

One-on-one consultations with on-campus support staff are also available; faculty can discuss an upcoming project in more depth, review best practices, or brainstorm about particular student needs by meeting with an experienced department administrator, knowledgeable staff person, and/or teaching colleague, as needed.
