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
  • Models for strategic planning
  • Peer review of faculty development strategic plans
  • Faculty consultations - best practices/nuts & bolts
  • Faculty observations - best practices/nuts & bolts
  • Part-time faculty support
  • Moving from a non-Center to a more formal Center
  • Collaboration on events within the region
  • Marketing our work
  • Perception of Centers (by faculty, administration, students)
  • Faculty career development support
