Ways faculty can partner with the center.

Faculty Liaison

The FCTL faculty liaison is a part-time, salary-supported position filled by a UMB faculty member. In this role, the faculty member represents the mission and vision of the FCTL to UMB faculty. This individual functions as a liaison between the FCTL staff and UMB faculty who are interested in course development and instruction — online, hybrid, and face-to-face — providing a faculty/peer, rather than staff, perspective, and experience. Some of the faculty liaison responsibilities include mentoring faculty with effective pedagogy from his/her experience and best practices from educational research; relaying faculty concerns and challenges back to the FCTL, allowing the FCTL to design appropriate and relevant resources and programming; and assisting in expanding the reach of the FCTL and advocating for its services and programs. The faculty liaison also assumes one of the faculty ambassador positions and participates in FCTL Advisory Board meetings.

Faculty Ambassadors

Faculty ambassadors serve as a bridge between the Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning and their home school/department to bi-directionally communicate identified strategic teaching and learning priorities. Each school at UMB will have faculty ambassadors who will represent the needs and interests of their fellow school faculty to the FCTL. They also will share information with their school faculty about FCTL programming, opportunities, and resources.
