Educational Faculty Development

Skill-Building Award

The Program in Educational Faculty Development will provide support for faculty to attend conferences or workshops with a focus on building teaching skills.

Support for Instructional Skill-Building

In addition to our own in-house workshops and seminars, the Program in Educational Faculty Development will provide support for faculty to attend other conferences or workshops that have a particular focus on curriculum development, instructional innovation, and/or improvement of teaching skills.  Reimbursement for registration fees, air or ground transportation, and lodging will be provided. 

Awards may not exceed $2500.  In order to ensure the greatest amount of equity possible, an individual will only be eligible for a single Skill-Building Award in any given fiscal year (conference date July 1 through June 30).  Original receipts must be submitted. 

Award recipients will be expected to work with the Program in Educational Faculty Development to share new knowledge and skills with AMS faculty through workshop development and delivery, sharing of electronic resources, or some other appropriate mechanism of dissemination.  Awards will be made on a rolling basis across the two academic semesters.
