The Office of Educational Development offers a variety
of opportunities for faculty development to faculty and administrators
in the School of Medicine and at UTMB. Please see the Faculty
Development drop down menu on the left hand side of this page for
individual pages with information and descriptions of our programs.
Following is an overview of some of our opportunities:
- Cool Fun Stuff
– faculty development series on innovation and technology integration
in education. This series is offered the 3rd Wednesday of every month
from 12-12:50 pm. Every other month there is an extended session for
hands-on learning. These sessions are called “Cool Fun Stuff XL” and
are 90 minutes. You can find upcoming sessions listed on our calendar
here. To register for these sessions, either email OEDhelp@utmb.edu or look for registration information on UTMB Announcements a month before the sessions are offered.
- Teaching Skills
– these sessions are also offered monthly. These sessions have not
been scheduled for the rest of the year, so please look for upcoming
sessions in the UTMB announcements, or the email from our office.
- Scholars in Education
- The Scholars in Education faculty development program is a 20-month
interdisciplinary faculty development program. Applications for the
program are accepted every other year. Our 2017-2019 cohort will begin
in September, 2017. Applications are no longer being accepted for the
upcoming cohort. Please look for application information for the next
cohort in spring 2019.
- Educational Research
– our office offers opportunities for scholars to present their
burgeoning academic work to other faculty and administrators in order
to receive feedback, guidance, and mentorship on their educational
research projects. These sessions are scheduled on an as needed basis.
At any time, please do not hesitate to contact me, or our office OEDhelp@utmb.edu, to inquire about any of the opportunities we offer faculty, staff, and administrators.
