The Provost’s Office coordinates professional and research development opportunities often in the form of discussion sessions and workshops.
Will vary depending upon the workshop, but generally open to all Drake faculty and staff with interests or needs in the relevant area.
The Provost’s Office hosts a number of sessions and workshops devoted to specific topics on teaching and learning. These workshops are announced at the beginning of each semester and are open to all Drake faculty and staff, though some workshops will only allow for limited numbers of participants.
More formal workshops are also available, sometimes with limited available seats from May through August. Announcements about these workshops and development opportunities are sent to faculty and/or staff for whom they are most relevant, which is often all faculty and staff. These workshops focus on topics responding to particular faculty and staff needs. Topics for these workshops have included using writing effectively in the classroom; writing instruction in the FYS program; and developing Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) projects.
Information about applying for and attending these workshops and about eligibility for supplemental stipendiary support for attendees is distributed via email shortly after spring break.
