The faculty development task force is compiling a list of speakers and topics also known as the T4 Project (Teachers Traveling to Teach Teachers). Many of our individual institutions have faculty development lectures, but it would be helpful to have a list of COMSEP members who are willing to travel to other institutions to give their workshops/lectures as guest speakers. This can include faculty development workshops or lectures that have been presented in the past at COMSEP meetings, PAS meetings, or even at individual institutions. This is a resource that will be posted on the COMSEP website.
One of the areas of concern is cost to the hosting institution. We thought a creative idea to circumvent some of the costs would be that if there was a grand rounds topic that the T4 representative was also willing to give, then cost of having the T4 at the host institution would already be covered for grand rounds, and the T4 could stay and also give a faculty development workshop. However, a grand rounds topic is optional.
On the following hyperlinks you will find the form for adding your information to our database and also the existing COMSEP members that have added their information.
