Workshops, Courses, and Seminars to Develop New Teaching Competencies
In accordance with the College's strategic interest in promoting interdisciplinary studies, ISC provides limited funding for faculty members to attend off-campus workshops, non-credit courses, and seminars that develop new teaching competencies in areas outside one's usual academic discipline. Examples include faculty members developing new foreign language competencies in order to incorporate second language options or materials in their courses or developing new media competencies in order to allow students to undertake media projects as part of their course work. Such funding is available for programs taking place during the summer or over break periods during the academic year but not during sabbatical or research leaves.
