Faculty Advisory Board

The Center for Instructional Innovation and Assessment (CIIA) began working with an advisory group in Fall of 2010. The inaugural board members have staggered appointments and membership will thereafter be sought via a nomination process.

The Board's charge is to assist the CIIA in carrying out its mission and to help chart its future direction. Expectations may include: advising the CIIA on developing and implementing policies and procedures; advocating for the recognition of teaching; supporting faculty development efforts in pedagogy and  instructional technology; serving as mentors for other faculty; reviewing nominations for the Innovative Teaching Showcase, reviewing proposals for instructional grants and programs; and advising the Director on other matters as appropriate.
