Development Opportunities

Welcome, faculty! We provide support and faculty development opportunities for the VIU community to work individually and collaboratively in order to enhance your efforts in teaching, research, and service. We invite you to explore and consider the resources presented on these pages.

Internal Events

The VIU Research & Educational Development Summit is a bi-annual (January and August) collaborative venture intended to serve as an in-service professional development opportunity. While the first part of the day is dedicated to a plenary and departmental meeting, the afternoon is divided into presentations given by members of the VIU faculty.

External Events

The Teaching Professor Technology Conference will examine the technologies that are changing the way teachers teach and students learn while giving special emphasis to the pedagogically effective ways you can harness these new technologies in your courses and on your campus.

Training Opportunities

The Faculty Development Office is pleased to offer faculty opportunities for training and development on various technology tools, online instruction, course design and pedagogical approaches to learning.
