Abstract

Centers for Teaching and Learning play a key support role in the enhancement of the instructional skills of faculty, yet many Centers are not adequately staffed or funded. One solution has been to leverage the knowledge and enthusiasm of successful faculty members by embedding them within their colleges as “extension agents” of the Center to provide faculty support services. One of the dilemmas of this approach is the question of Faculty Fellows delivering consistently high-quality educational workshops to their peers. These proceedings provide a brief overview of a Dialogue Education model that worked to frame all workshop designs created and delivered by Faculty Fellows across campus, and which served, as an added benefit, to improve their own teaching as well.
