Have you seen a steady decline in faculty engagement over the last two years? You aren’t alone in answering “yes”. As we move beyond the pandemic, it’s time to reengage faculty and reestablish, rebuild, and restrengthen the longstanding connections they have had to their institutions beyond their students and classrooms.

In this live two-part virtual workshop, your presenters, Russell Carpenter, Eastern Kentucky University and Kevin Dvorak, Nova Southeastern University, will examine ten barriers to engagement and offers numerous evidence-based solutions to overcome them that you can try in your own programs.

Why You Don’t Want to Miss This!

Building on the Journal of Faculty Development’s September 2022 special section on Faculty (Re)Engagement, this live two-part virtual workshop focuses on the challenges of faculty engagement amid disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The presenters, Russell Carpenter, editor in chief and Kevin Dvorak, senior editor of the Journal of Faculty Development, invite faculty developers to share strategies for (re)engaging faculty—for reestablishing, rebuilding, and restrengthening the connections faculty have long had to their institutions beyond their students and classrooms.


Topics Covered

  • Part I – The institute will begin by setting the context for the challenges associated with faculty (re)engagement amid pandemic and post-pandemic academic environments. Bringing diverse perspectives, panelists will focus on the ten barriers identified to faculty (re)engagement including mental exhaustion; stress and trauma; increased teaching workload; balancing flexibility with learning; disparate effects (and vulnerability); varying institutional response, support, or resources; changing technology; managing responsibilities that span personal and professional (health, home, and family); accessibility; and inclusion.
  • Part II – Panelists and participants will offer evidence-based solutions to faculty (re)engagement based on research, effective program or initiative design, or successful practices they have developed on their own campuses. Participants will be encouraged to share their perspectives and ideas.
