This category contains professional development opportunities that consist of collaborative groups of faculty members working together for a common goal. These programs are designed for faculty members who are looking for an ongoing professional development opportunity. During the semester, members will meet 4-5 times to discuss current research, develop new strategies and techniques, and work together to improve teaching. Groups are faculty-driven and provide a supportive environment for exchanging ideas. Programs in this category include First-Year Faculty Series (FYFS), Second-Year Faculty Series (SYFS), Reflective Practice Groups (RPGs), Faculty Inquiry Groups (FIGs), and Reading Groups.
