Engaged Teacher-Scholar Program: Call for Applications 2021-2022 (Faculty Community)

Fri, 19 Mar 2021 12:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Apply by Fri 3/19 at 12:00 PM.


Apply to become an Engaged Teacher-Scholar (ETS) with the Center for Faculty Innovation. The Engaged Teacher-Scholar (ETS) program offers faculty support in creating and sharing evidence-based teaching and learning scholarship. 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. Faculty chosen to participate as ETS leaders will receive professional development funds (contingent on budget approval) for the year to support their professional goals.

Applications are due March 19h for inclusion in the program beginning August 2021 and running through May 2022.

Benefits to being an Engaged Teacher-Scholar include:

  • Being recognized for evidence-based teaching and learning scholarship.
  • Serving as a liaison between CFI and department/college on ETS initiatives.
  • Supporting JMU colleagues (within her/his department or college) with ETS efforts.
  • Being a part of JMU’s Community of Engaged Teacher-Scholars.
  • Receiving professional development funds (contingent on budget approval) to support personal ETS efforts (i.e. disseminate ETS work, attend ETS Professional Development opportunities, travel to ETS conferences, workshops, etc.)

During the academic year, Engaged Teacher-Scholars will…

  • Work with CFI to develop a plan for and offer ETS events each semester to their Unit-College and University-wide (examples include journal clubs, workshops, roundtables, methodology review, etc.). 
  • Make progress on their evidence-based teaching and learning scholarship project(s).
  • Participate in a community of Engaged Teacher-Scholars.
  • Attend CFI-organized or other professional development opportunities.

We want this program to be welcoming, accessible, and inclusive for all of our participants. Please describe any considerations (e.g., disability, wellness, cultural, etc.) you want us to know about in the registration survey. You may also reach out to us personally at Tiffany Runion, or (540)568-4846.
