Research Consultant Available
This semester, as part of his work as a CAE faculty liaison, Dr. Michael Andreychik is serving as a CAE Research Consultant. Broadly, the CAE research consultant helps support faculty research by assisting with research design and statistical analysis and interpretation. Although the CAE consultant could assist with any stage of the research process, the most typical tasks include assisting with the design of research projects prior to data collection (e.g., help choosing methodological approaches that best enable researchers to address the questions they're most interested in; designing research in ethically appropriate ways) and assisting with data analysis both by working with faculty to identify appropriate analytical strategies prior to data collection and/or helping faculty to analyze data that have already been collected. Dr. Andreychik is happy to help individuals or teams of researchers in whatever ways that he can. Because faculty projects differ greatly in scope, population of interest, aims, etc., it is likely that much of the work of the consultant will take place in one-on-one or group consultation with faculty. But, if there are common areas of faculty interest related to research design, it is also possible that group workshops will also be designed and offered. Please have any interested faculty contact Dr. Andreychik directly at email@example.com!
Online Course Development Grants Continue...
The Center for Academic Excellence is continuing to accept applications for Faculty Development Grants to develop online courses. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis as applications are received, and course development work will largely be done online, using the very tools that instructors will incorporate into the courses they're developing.
Both full-time and part-time faculty are eligible to receive grants - $500 at the start of the course development & training process, and another $500 once the course begins running. For more information, please contact Jay Rozgonyi at firstname.lastname@example.org.
