STEP WEBINAR: Creating a Faculty Fellows Community: Developing Collaboration Through Facilitation

For STEP projects, faculty development is key. Facilitation is much more about the process of the participants' experience than it is about conveying a certain body of knowledge or a set of skills. There is no "right" way to lead a group of STEM faculty, but there are some approaches that have been more effective than others for STEM faculty professional development. This workshop will provide suggestions for creating a faculty learning community by creating an atmosphere of collaboration, by offering activities to encourage collaboration, and by suggesting academic service-learning skills to develop interdepartmental STEM community-based experiential seminars.
