FACULTY DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE ANNUAL REPORT Membership, : John Brueggeman, Associate Dean, (Spring term) Alice Dean, Chair, Professor of Mathematics Sarah Goodwin, Associate Dean, (Fall term) Viviana Rangil, Associate Professor of Spanish Peter Stake, Associate Professor of Art Aldo Vacs, Professor of Government Membership, : John Brueggeman, Associate Dean Steven Frey, Assistant Professor of Chemistry Margaret Pearson, Associate Professor of History Viviana Rangil, Associate Professor of Spanish Peter Stake, Chair, Associate Professor of Art The committee met sixteen times during the academic year. The primary function of the FDC is solicitation, consideration, and awarding of applications for various faculty development opportunities that are offered throughout the academic year. A list of this year's awards is appended to this report. Other committee items of interest include the following: Faculty Major Project Completion awards were given for the first time this year. FDC designed a set of guidelines that will appear in the Faculty Development Handbook, and a mid-to-late fall application deadline will be implemented, to make it easier for faculty whose applications for this award are rejected to apply for the Faculty Research Initiative Grant at the beginning of the spring semester. Interaction with CFG: CFG added FDC to the membership of the Committee of Committees, and the chair of FDC was included in the membership of GAC. In addition, FDC proposed to CFG that the length of faculty terms be extended from two years to three, to improve the experience and institutional memory that can be brought to bear on award decisions. The proposal was approved by CFG, and it will be brought before the faculty in the fall. In the spirit of improving FDC's institutional memory, the committee developed a set of criteria (modified from a FDC document) for evaluating Moseley Faculty Lecturer nominations. The new guidelines will be passed on to the next FDC to use or not, as it sees fit. The committee members expressed concern that faculty members are not maximizing the opportunities to either obtain grant money for themselves, or to honor colleagues with outstanding records. The committee hopes that future FDC's will try to address this issue by increased advertising of both opportunities and faculty accomplishments, and by reminding faculty members that the process for applying themselves, or for recommending colleagues, is quite simple for most awards. On the other hand, one award that is sometimes over-requested is the Faculty Development Grant. Every effort is made to give as full as possible awards to all deserving applicants. The committee reminds faculty members applying for travel money to be sure to first exhaust their Travel to Read/Represent funds, before applying for a Faculty Development Grant to fund travel. At the suggestion of several award recipients, the letters announcing approval or rejection of applications will be redesigned to give that information more directly, at the beginning of the letter. Summer technology grants: After consultation and discussion, the committee agreed that the guidelines of these grants should be revised to fund not just equipment acquisition, but more general expenses. The change will be consistent with the policies for other awards. We also agreed that a future FDC should revisit the guidelines for approving web design proposals. Peter Stake will be Chair of the Faculty Development Committee for academic year Many thanks to the committee members for their hard work and good will, and especially to Chris McGill, who did so much for FDC at a time when she was (in addition to her 'day job' in the DOF office) also playing a major role in coordinating the selection of our new president.
