Otis is committed to supporting faculty in their pursuit of excellence in teaching effectiveness, professional activities, and collegiality. Faculty Development opportunities include Grants, Workshops, Pedagogical Support, and Sabbaticals.
The Faculty Development Committee of the Academic Assembly provides leadership in supporting the development and selecting of Faculty Development Grants (which reimburse recipients for funded expenses), and in prioritizing applications for Sabbatical Leave.
Pedagogical/Classroom Support in the form of one-on-one consultations with on-campus support staff are also available through the Teaching Learning Center (TLC), and Software Upgrade Grants and Curricular Innovation Grants for Blended and Online Learning Development are also available here.
Video Tutorials by Faculty for Faculty allow colleagues to learn from one another about themes and topics germane to all who teach our students.
Technology Discounts are also availble in support of faculty needs for software and hardware.
