When building a new faculty development program, communicating your vision and soliciting support from organizational leadership and faculty can be a struggle.

A strategic plan is a blueprint for challenging assumptions and promoting change within existing structures. It’s a tool that, when properly leveraged, can help you acquire the buy-in you need to develop new programs.

What steps can you take to produce a strategic plan that elicits support?

In this Magna Online Seminar, presented by Rosemary Tyrrell, EdD, you’ll learn the steps for creating an effective and dynamic strategic plan, ways of using the strategic plan to build institutional support for faculty development programs, and methods for using the strategic plan to communicate with outside stakeholders.
