The purpose of the EII’s Faculty Development Fellowship Program is to provide select Augusta University health professions faculty with a guided training experience that broadens their professional identity; equips them with new skills, abilities, and knowledge; and prepares them to make scholarly and educational contributions that will enhance or improve health professions education at Augusta University and beyond. Currently, we offer two Fellowship Tracks: Educational Research Track (ERT) and Teaching Scholars Track (TST).
Educational Research Track (ERT): The purpose of the ERT is to facilitate participants’ formation and development as (a) producers of health professions educational research, (b) advocates for educational research within their own departments and the broader Augusta University community, and (c) coaches, mentors, and leaders to other Augusta University faculty who are interested in or engaged in health professions educational research.
Under the ERT the expectations of the Fellows are:
Teaching Scholars Track (TST): The purpose of the TST is to facilitate participants’ formation and development as (a) health professions educators who are knowledgeable, purposeful, and skilled in teaching, learning, educational assessment, and educational scholarship and (b) educational experts and leaders within their own departments and the broader Augusta University community.
Under the TST the expectations of the Fellows are:
Funding: Faculty applicants negotiate with their department Chair for 10% release time to attend weekly training sessions and to develop a project. The department financially supports this release time.
