JMU faculty are invited to submit an application for the Engaged Teacher-Scholar (ETS) Program. The goal of the ETS Program is to recognize JMU faculty who engage in meaningful evidence-based teaching and learning scholarship.  The program aims to support faculty growth in a process of becoming ETS leaders across JMU’s campus. Engaged Teacher-Scholars view teaching and learning from a scholarly point of view.  Whether their work is called Discipline-based Education Research, Teaching Inquiry, or Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, these scholars are educators who engage in evidence-based teaching and learning scholarly activities.  Approximately eight Engaged Teacher-Scholars will be selected from across JMU and will have between $300-500 to be used for both professional development efforts (such as travel, conference attendance, research materials, etc.) and department-level, academic unit, or college-level ETS initiatives during the Spring 2017 semester.  The expectation is that the Engaged-Teacher Scholars will continue in their role for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Faculty participants will make progress toward these program outcomes:

  • Developing a personalized ETS plan for the Spring 2017 semester and beyond,
  • Developing a plan to engage department-level or college-level colleagues with ETS efforts, and
  • Being a ETS leader and champion for the JMU community.

Faculty participants will make progress toward these scholarship outcomes: 

  • Enhancing scholarly productivity, and
  • Practicing the integration of scholarship with teaching and other career aspirations.

Faculty participants will make progress toward these teaching outcomes: 

  • Practicing the integration of scholarship and teaching, and
  • Integrating knowledge of student development models in teaching philosophies and practice.

If you require non-dietary accommodations to participate in this program, please email the CFI at or call (568-4846) immediately to convey your needs.  We will work with the HR department to provide you with reasonable accommodations, as time permits.
