2011 International Institute for
New Faculty Developers
The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning at Kennesaw State University and the POD Network are pleased to announce that registrations are now being accepted for the International Institute for New Faculty Developers, to be held June 18-22, 2011, in Kennesaw, Georgia (right outside of Atlanta).
Faculty development is crucial for institutions which are becoming more student-centered and need to be more accountable to the public. As a career, it is rewarding and exciting. And yet, most people in the field entered it without proper training or a qualifying degree and have faced a steep learning curve when they were starting out. TO address this challenge, every two years the POD Network sponsors a week-long International Institute for New Faculty Developers.
The Institute is designed to answer questions asked by new faculty developers and to provide the resources to get them started in planning, developing, and managing programs that will be effective in strengthening teaching and learning on campus.
Participants at the Institute will learn from a group of outstanding presenters and facilitators from a diverse mix of institutions who are recognized leaders in the field. The 2011 Institute will take place on the campus of Kennesaw State University, Located in the Atlanta metropolitan area.
Participants will save $150 off the regular Institute fee when registering by the Early Bird deadline of April 29, 2011. Fees for this five-day program include all program activities and materials, two key resources “A Guide to Faculty Development” and “How Learning Works: 7 Research-Based Principles for Smart Teaching,” and most meals and refreshments, all at a reasonable rate.
