Through the Summit registration process, you will identify topics that are important to you or in which you have expertise or experience. We will use this information to plan a portion of our time together. The Summit will also offer a refreshing break from the typical conference format by creating time and space for participants to plan and facilitate just-in-time roundtable discussions and working sessions, thereby utilizing the faculty development expertise found within our regions.
Potential discussion topics include, but are not limited to:
- Increasing participation and engagement in faculty development
- Assessment of faculty development efforts
- Peer review of faculty development assessment plans

- Peer review of faculty development strategic plans
- Faculty consultations - best practices/nuts & bolts
