At too many institutions, faculty development has been a fragmented effort, running "hot" or "cold" in reaction to external pressures. Faculty Development Associates embraces an approach that assesses extensively the needs of key stakeholder groups, then designs a comprehensive, strategic program that targets those needs. Continuous feedback and program improvements insure that institutional investments of time and emotional energy are optimized, while keeping costs manageable.

Our Senior Consultant, Dr. Richard Lyons, is well grounded in current research relative to faculty development, as well as best practices at leading institutions. Please take a moment to review The Academic Leader article that highlights a program he designed and installed at a leading institution in Florida. While not designed to be a solution to all of the instructional challenges your institution might be confronting, it should instill a deeper understanding of what can be accomplished in spite of limited resources.
