Center for Faculty Enrichment

The Augustana Center for Faculty Enrichment (CFE) supports the professional development of Augustana faculty of all types, ranks and career stages.

The center strives to provide:

• A place to locate and explore professional development resources

• Campus programming that serves faculty needs and inspires professional innovation

• Coordination and promotion of faculty development opportunities

• Opportunities for faculty from different disciplines, as well as administrative staff, to come together and share ideas

• A comprehensive orientation and ongoing programming for new faculty

• Targeted opportunities for career enrichment relevant to adjunct / part-time / professional / fellow and lecturer faculty, junior tenure-track faculty, mid-career tenured faculty, and senior late-career faculty.

Evolving from the Augustana Center for Teaching and Learning, the CFE is especially committed to enriching faculty work that advances our common mission of teaching and learning through a wide range of programming and resources.

The center strives to:

• Emphasize high-impact practices for effective undergraduate teaching and deep student learning, based on relevant scholarship and best practices

• Offer opportunities for personal and small group consultations to observe and provide feedback on teaching

• Make available resources and campus programming for continuing pedagogical development.

The center is also committed to faculty enrichment through professional development in career priorities beyond teaching and learning, such as:

• Scholarship: developing and managing projects, academic writing, grant applications, etc.

• Service and leadership: identifying and pursuing relevant service opportunities, devloping skill sets for group collaboration, committee and departmental leadership, and administrative work, etc.

• Productivity: locating and using tools and best practices for professional efficiency and work/life balance.
