This year, the FDO is offering 29 sessions addressing research, teaching, advising, collaboration, and much more!
The FDO is seeking topics for next year's faculty inquiry projects. Designed as small collegial groups, these projects explore a single subject in depth. Past topics have included productivity, leadership, and online course materials. Please contact Amy Kinch with suggestions for next year's inquiry projects.
Schedule a department training on making these resources accessible to all students: syllabi, course documents, online course pages, PowerPoint presentations, Moodle quizzes, and web conferences. Contact Marlene Zentz (x6434).
