Part-time Faculty Institute
Part-time faculty can enhance their teaching skills, meet and enjoy a light meal with colleagues, and earn a stipend by participating in the Part-Time Faculty Institute (PTFI), a program at UofL designed especially for the needs of part-time faculty. The PTFI provides UofL's part-time faculty with tools and resources to help them become even more effective educators in the classroom. Participants in any of the sessions will find them beneficial to their teaching.
The 2012-13 PTFI theme is: How Learning Works: Exploring Research Based Principles for Smart Teaching.
The Institute offers six sessions (one topic per session). Part-time faculty who participate in five of the six sessions in a 12-month period will receive a transcript verifying their participation and a $300.00 stipend.
Rules for Participation
- Participants must complete five out of six sessions within a 12-month period (from the date of the first session attended) in order to receive the stipend. Part-time faculty may substitute participation in a Dine and Discover session, the Celebration of Teaching and Learning, or I2a Institute for one of the five sessions within the 12-month period needed to qualify for this stipend;
- Participants must be actively teaching at UofL during the semester for which credit towards the stipend is accrued;
- A maximum of 25 faculty may participate in any PTFI session. Participants are accepted on a first-come-first-served basis;
- To support the annual review process for part-time faculty, the Delphi Center will send a transcript verifying a faculty member's attendance at PTFI and other Delphi Center faculty development sessions. Faculty members desiring such documentation should direct their request to Roy Fuller, allowing ten business day's notice.
For more information about the Part-time Faculty Institute, contact Dr. Roy Fuller, Delphi Center Part-time Faculty Fellow, at 502.852.0663.
