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 leaders embed faculty development in regular meetings for strategic unit learning.
  • To help faculty and leaders identify expertise across the campus.
