Spring Faculty Development Workshop

The Office of Student Research, the Center for Faculty Enrichment and Greenwood Library sponsors a faculty development workshop in January on teaching the research process.  This workshop focuses on teaching students how to find, evaluate, synthesize and use research sources to help them select research topics, design research questions/hypotheses, and develop comprehensive literature reviews. Participants receive a $500 stipend. The Spring Faculty Development Workshop supports Goal 1 of Longwood University’s Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP), “to improve student learning by promoting their discovery of new knowledge through research.” It specifically supports Action 1.1, “identify or develop courses to be enhanced for research skills development and prepare faculty through development grants and workshops to offer these courses.”
