The focus of the Faculty Mentorship Program is two-fold. First, we aim to foster faculty-to-faculty mentoring relationships that inspire, engage, and build a stronger DSC faculty community. Through these relationships, we aim to help faculty set and achieve individual goals and to align their goals with Daytona State College's institutional learning outcomes: critical/creative thinking, communication skills, cultural literacy, and information and technical literacy.
A typical experience will include:
- Three full cohort meetings
- Program Orientation
- Mid-semester Online Check-in
- Wrap-up Session
- Individual interactions with your mentor
- Work on several artifacts
- Individual Goals Plan: Teaching, Professional Development, and Institutional Culture
- Letter of reflection to the Faculty Fellow
- Other artifacts of your choosing
The application deadline for the 2016-2017 cohort has passed.
Working with a seasoned faculty member is a great way to grow professionally, and even though participating in the mentoring program is professional development in and of itself, doing so will also give you further opportunities for professional development. This is a one semester commitment in which you agree to work with a Faculty Fellow. To get the most from your experience, we recommend that you continue moving through the subsequent parts of the WAC/WID program to become a Faculty Fellow, but you have no obligation to do so.
Faculty who have participated in all segments of the WAC/WID program are eligible to participate as Faculty Fellows who are eligible for a course release or stipend.
