Faculty Modules

Professional Development Modules from Faculty Travels

The College of Humanities and Social Sciences funded several professional development proposals to support travel related to distance education (conference, training, or seminar). This support was offered to full-time CHSS faculty and was limited to qualified reimbursable expenses of a maximum of $1,500 for domestic or $3,000 for international travel. While not required, preference was given to faculty facilitating training or presenting on e-learning at the conference.

One requirement of those whose travel was funded was that they commit to the creation of an online module to share the information gained at the conference or training seminar with other faculty, due within 90 days of return from travel. The modules were to be self-contained and designed to function without a faculty moderator. These modules are used by the CHSS Office of Digital Education in training designed to advance the e-learning skills or CHSS faculty, and they are also posted on this page for use by any faculty interested in professional development for distance education.
