Faculty Learning Communities

Faculty Learning Community Awardees
The Office for Faculty Development recently accepted proposals
for Faculty Learning Communities. The communities are cross-
campus, inter-disciplinary groups, each working towards a com-
mon goal. In early April, the committee met to determine which
of the communities would be funded. Faculty Development
wishes to acknowledge and congratulate the Faculty Learning
Communities who were granted funding.
Thank you to all who submitted proposals. We hope to offer this
opportunity again in the future, and encourage all to apply. Infor-
mation on next year's call for proposals will be posted on our
webpage next spring.
The office will fund the following 6 communities this year:
* Stimulation Faculty Learning Community; Facilitated by Sam-
sun Lampotang, Anesthesiology
* Developing an Integrated Obesity Prevention and Treatment
Leaning Community; Facilitated by Steve Dorman, Health and
Human Performance

Faculty Development Webpage

You asked. We answered. The webpage for the
Office for Faculty Development is getting a make-
over! The webpage will debut its new look at the
end of the summer. There will be new features, a
new look, and a more easily navigated lay-out. Be
sure to check it out at www.aa.ufl.edu/aa/facdev.

Neews Story
Career Flexibility Symposium

Thanks to the Alfred P. Sloan Grant awarded to
the University in July 2006, Faculty Development
hosted a day long symposium in February entitled
"Traditional and Non-Traditional Work-Life Chal-
lenges: A Conversation About Career Flexibility."
The symposium consisted of 3 main sessions
throughout the day. These sessions focused on
career flexibility practices in the world of acade-
mia, how these practices affect graduate stu-
dents, and what these practices mean to the uni-
versity community at large.

As a result of conversations and ideas generated
at the symposium, Faculty Development is work-
ing to develop a webpage devoted entirely to ca-
reer flexibility. The web page will feature video
archives of the presentations from the symposium
and links to various information pages. The office
plans to debut the webpage at the end of the
summer. For more information on the sympo-
sium, for copies of hand-outs and access to the
archives prior to the webpage debut, please con-
tact Alison Hightower at 392-4835 or
ahightower@aa.ufl.edu.
