Faculty Development Resources

The following materials are provided to assist in the presentation of a faculty development “snippet” (Bar-on and Konopasek, 2014). Faculty development snippets are designed to be presented at meetings that faculty already attend. They should focus on one objective and be no longer than 20 minutes. 

We offer customized levels of support for this process. You may:

  • Feel free to download the template for use in your own faculty meetings
  • Schedule a consultation to help you in developing the template (ideas for activities, help customizing your objective, etc.)
  • Schedule a time for an educational expert to co-present during your faculty meeting
  • Schedule a time for an educational expert to present the snippet for you
