Faculty Developers Project
Supported by the UW System Office of Professional & Instructional
Development (OPID), the Faculty Developers Project is intended to
improve the quality of faculty development services offered at campuses
across the UW system. In order to accomplish this, the project focuses
on providing training, networking, communication, and resources
for those faculty and staff (the "faculty developers")
providing these services on their campuses.
The project currently involves 4 elements:
- Determining the needs of faculty developers;
- Creating & collecting of materials/resources for faculty developers;
- Holding meetings, trainings, and/or conferences for faculty
- Disseminating materials to, and facilitating ongoing communication
among, faculty developers.
It endeavors to support a wide array of activities designed to
assist faculty in performing their professional duties. In the
UW system, faculty development activities have often focused on
promoting the improvement of teaching and learning. However, these
activities also include assistance with research and grants. In
many cases, academic staff are also included in these activities.
The menu at left provides an extensive collection of faculty
development programs, activities and other resources available
to faculty developers within the UW System.
