Fac Dev is Changing!

Apologies for radio silence in the past month. Faculty Development at EIU is expanding, adding new faces, and offering new services. We have added to our offices and conferences rooms, and have a new front desk. We also have a new email address fdic@eiu.edu, new hours and contact information, and this website will be migrating to eiu.edu/fdic. All of this will be announced by the third week in July. Excited to announce the changes shortly!

Fac Dev on D2L

The Faculty Development course site within Brightspace (d2l) has been moved to the current semester. The Fac Dev site is open to all faculty and gives access to news and information. Through this course site, all faculty teaching this semester can access the 20 Minute-Mentor Commons, a series of programs on refining and rethinking teaching face-to-face, online and blended courses, at both the individual course and the department/program level. If you are faculty, but not teaching this semester, and want to add this, email us


Support for Presenters and Attendees to Upcoming Faculty Summer Institute

We would like to draw your attention to the Call for Proposals for the Faculty Summer Institute at the iHotel in Champaign May 16-17, 2018. Faculty Development will pay for the registration and most travel for all presenters from Eastern Illinois. Also, we will reimburse the registration and some travel for all those attending (or those first registering, up to our allotted budget). Contact us for directions on how to take advantage of this offer, or complete a Travel Application and send to our Office.
