What will I get out of this presentation?


Where did this faculty development stuff come from l.jpg

In November 1997, an agreement was signed between the Administration and the AAUP designating $1.5 million per year for faculty development over the three-year period autumn 1995 – autumn 1998, with retroactive payment for 1995-1996.

Where did this faculty-development stuff come from?


Wow i didn t realize there was so much money available l.jpg

With the bargaining contract of autumn 1998 – autumn 2001, the amount designated for faculty development dropped to $500,000 per year, the amount that has continued into the current contract.

Through negotiated agreements, the actual amount per year is right around $550,000.

Wow! I didn’t realize there was so much money available!


So where does all this cash go l.jpg

2004-2005 the amount designated for faculty development dropped to $500,000 per year, the amount that has continued into the current contract. (with funding decisions being made ca. March 2005):

Individual proposals: 86 submitted (totaling $263,710), 51 funded (totaling $160,435). (Not all proposals were funded at the level requested.)

Departmental/interdisciplinary proposals: 31 submitted, 12 funded (totaling $114,492).

Universal providers: The Center for the Enhancement of Teaching & Learning ($152,000 for the 2005 September Institute, which funded 75 faculty participants); University Libraries and AIT&L ($120,000 for the Early Summer Technology Institute).

So where does all this cash go?


Seems like a lot for these universal providers l.jpg

Some of the unfunded collaborative proposals were referred to the CET&L September Institute as a more appropriate venue for some of the projects.

In the cases of both Univ Libraries / AIT&L and the CET&L grants, the main portion of that funding goes directly to faculty in the form of professional-development incentive awards to participate in the funded initiatives.

Seems like a lot for these “universal providers.”


What about last year l.jpg

2005-2006 to the CET&L September Institute as a more appropriate venue for some of the projects.

Individual proposals: 116 submitted (totaling $442,000), 43 funded (totaling $166,000).

Dept. & Interdisciplinary proposals: 12 funded at $142,000.

Universal providers: Univ. Libraries and AIT&L ($125,000); Center for the Enhancement of Teaching & Learning ($113,250 for the 2006 September Institute, to fund 60 faculty participants); Faculty Technology Resources Center ($15,000)

What about last year?


That s all ancient history how do i get fdc money tomorrow l.jpg

The most recent deadline for FDC proposals for individual faculty was November 15, with another round for individuals likely in the early spring.

The deadline for collaborative proposals (departmental & interdisciplinary) is Feb. 26.

But: any questions before we begin to talk strategy?

That’s all ancient history. How do I get FDC money tomorrow?

Once logged in, click the “community” tab faculty was November 15, with another round for individuals likely in the early spring.

So how does the fdc differ from the urc l.jpg

One useful distinction (but first, imagine yourself as a student studying a syllabus):

If the University Research Council is interested in the course goals that concern the content knowledge that you will achieve in this course, then the Faculty Development Council is interested in the course goals that concern the learning skills that you will achieve.

So how does the FDC differ from the URC?


So who s on this fdc l.jpg

Faculty Senate reps: student studying a syllabus):

Angela Myatt (AIT&L)

Jane Thompson (AIT&L)

T. Ray Wheeler (CCM)

Admin appointees:

Robert Frank (A&S Psychology)

Michael Lieberman (CoM and UCit)

BJ Zirger (CoB and CET&L)

So who’s on this FDC?


What are the secret strategies for developing good fdc proposals l.jpg

They’re actually disgustingly similar to the strategies that lead to success in any grant proposal.

What are the secret strategies for developing good FDC proposals?


Success strategies l.jpg

Follow the RFP emphases upon “faculty development” at all times.

Always remember to “be specific.”

Consider offering some matching funds.

Don’t write for the reviewer in your discipline.

Offer to share the learning with others.

Don’t play the “go to a conference for free” card.

Success strategies:
