Faculty Resources for Teaching

Faculty-Student Projects

This program funds a range of faculty-student projects including but not limited to laboratory research, archival research, research in preparation for honors theses or other significant student projects, and projects in the studio arts, music and theatre.  Projects may involve collaborative faculty-student research, faculty supervised undergraduate research, or intensive projects in the arts, music and theatre.  The goal is to accommodate different types of faculty-student projects aimed at improving student learning and strengthening faculty teaching and/or scholarship.  Tenured and tenure-track faculty members, full-time coaches, librarians and academic affairs staff with faculty rank may apply.  Part-time and visiting faculty may apply with departmental approval. The program pays faculty and student project expenses during the academic year.   For up to eight summer weeks, the program pays faculty and student stipends, student housing, project expenses, travel and other items related to the particular project.  The Office of the Provost will be sending out the Call for Proposals in fall.  Click here for more information.

Rollins Teaching & Learning Workshop

The Rollins Teaching & Learning Workshop is an intensive one-week workshop for qualified faculty of member institutions belonging to the Associated Colleges of the South (ACS).  The workshop is designed for good teachers who want to become even better. Both senior and junior faculty from all disciplines will have the opportunity to receive feedback on their teaching, trade ideas and techniques, explore the interrelationships between teaching styles and student learning styles, and discuss the many pedagogical issues we face in the liberal arts environment. If you are interested in attending, send a letter of interest to John McCann in the Provost Office by mid-January stating what you hope to get out of the workshop and why this year is a good time for you to participate. From the letters received, two faculty members will be selected to attend the workshop in June.

Teaching with Technology Grants

Available are a number of Teaching with Technology Fellowships for qualified faculty and staff members at Associated Colleges of the South (ACS) institutions and National Institute for Technology and Liberal Education (NITLE) Southern Region institutions. These fellowships provided a $2500 stipend for the development of teaching materials or other curricular enhancements in which technology played a key role and which had potential application for other ACS institutions.
