Faculty Innovators

The Faculty Innovators Program is a 24-month professional 
development program for faculty. Our mission is to create
 a cadre of technology "champions" throughout the COEHS who 
will mentor their fellow faculty members and raise the standard for 
technology integration in teaching and learning.

If you would like to participate in the Faculty Innovators Program make your department chair aware of your interest!  Applications are taken for spots in the program each April! If you have specific program questions or would like more information, contact Dawn Sweet,   DR-Sweet@wiu.edu.
