THRIVE: Success strategies for the modern-day faculty member

Thrive is a collection of thought-provoking, one- to two-page briefs that are designed to be easily digested, guide personal reflection, and be implemented immediately into your classroom, clinic, or online teaching. Thrive contains over 50 ideas for fast, focused faculty development that can be used in several key ways:

  • To help individuals learn on the fly, in a condensed, need-to-know format.
  • To help smaller learning communities or peer mentoring groups have a guide of ready content.
  • To help leaders embed faculty development in regular meetings for strategic unit learning.
  • To help faculty and leaders identify expertise across the campus.
