Faculty Liaisons are expected to conduct annual professional development workshops on course integrity, grading standards, course pedagogy, theory, philosophy or other appropriate topics. The Concurrent Enrollment (CE) program provides time and space to conduct discipline-specific professional development during the annual Fall Instructor Training in early August.
Faculty Liaisons can choose to hold their professional development events on an alternate date and will receive event planning support from the CEP to schedule and organize their professional development meetings. The cost for instructor travel, parking and materials will be covered by the CE program.
NACEP produced an issue brief with helpful ideas about ways to provide meaningful and collegial professional development for instructors. The Boise State Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) also has numerous University-wide faculty development opportunities in which instructors are encouraged to participate.
In addition to annual, organized professional development events, Faculty Liaisons are encouraged to communicate department-specific information to instructors on a regular basis and include instructors and the CE program director in all department correspondence, listservs, academic notices and general information.
Instructors are also required to submit by email an updated class syllabus annually before school starts. This ensures that the academic department and the CE program has the latest curriculum changes on file. This is a requirement for NACEP accreditation, as well as ensures accessibility for students and other institutions when requested for transferability evaluation purposes.
