Email - UNIFIed Academy: Faculty Professional Development Opportunity 4-22-22

Dear colleagues, 

In preparation for the launch of our new general education program in the Fall 2022, you are invited to apply for the upcoming UNI Foundational Inquiry faculty development opportunity described in detail below. 

UNIFIed Academy 2022 | May 23-26, 2022

Professional development for UNIFI faculty

Sponsored by UNIFI, CETL & the Office of the Provost

$1,000 stipends for participation and completion

It is exciting to think that the promise of our new general education model will soon be realized in student learning! The UNIFIed Academy – the “ed” is for educational development – will invite a select group of faculty to help define, implement, and disseminate transformative pedagogies for classes in this program.

The Academy is open to all faculty who will be teaching or proposing UNIFI courses. Organizers of the Academy will encourage a deliberate course-building process, from exploratory beginnings to the incorporation of specific teaching practices and strategies. We are also looking for applicants who are excited about advancing the culture of general education teaching at UNI. The UNIFIed Academy is limited to 6 participants.

The UNIFIed Academy will comprise 12 hours of in-person sessions from May 23 to 26 (9am-12pm each day), plus daily reflection, course development, and reading. Subsequent work to complete a required UNIFIed portfolio must be completed by June 10, 2022.

A stipend of $1000 will be awarded for full participation in all Academy sessions and successful completion and submission of all associated artifacts.

Full description and application are available here.

Please direct questions to the UNIFI Curriculum Coordinator Jeremy Schraffenberger and/or CETL Director Jonathan Chenoweth. 

Sincerely, 

Jeremy Schraffenberger

UNIFI Curriculum Coordinator
