May Symposium CFI Conference Wednesday
In 2014, the Center for Faculty Innovation introduced a new component to May Symposium - CFI Conference Wednesday. CFI Conference Wednesday reflects feedback asking for more offerings after the grade submission deadline on Tuesday as well as more flexibility and options in selecting sessions. All of the CFI Conference Wednesday sessions came from members of the JMU community through an open call for proposals. Proposals were vetted by the May Symposium team and selected based on the alignment of outcomes with the mission of the CFI to enhance academic culture through professional development experiences designed to encourage excellence in teaching, scholarship, service, and leadership for JMU faculty. CFI Conference Wednesday included a lunch plenary by visiting scholar, John W. Creswell, and concluded with the Noftsinger Celebration of Madison Scholarship.
