Please join us for our annual Celebration of Faculty Scholarship on Thursday, February 21,  from 4 – 6 p.m. at the Olin Library.

The Celebration of Faculty Scholarship is an annual campus event and ongoing program hosted by the Olin Library that recognizes the scholarly publications, research, and creative works completed by Rollins faculty members in the previous calendar year. We welcome all full- and part-time faculty from the College of Liberal Arts and the Crummer School of Business to attend and celebrate their scholarly achievements alongside the Board of Trustees.

Appetizers, Beer, Wine, and Dessert will be provided!

Food For Thought: How a Greener Diet Can Transform You & The Planet.

Join Dr. Kong on Wednesday, February 20th at 5:30pm in the Olin Library as she addresses the critical impacts of animal agriculture and meat consumption. Dr. Kong is also a critically-acclaimed and award-winning classical keyboardist and chamber musician who is a regular guest harpsichordist with the Bach Festival at Rollins College. She is the Director of Accompaniment and Coordinator of Chamber Ensembles at the University of Richmond.

The 2019 Open Educational Resources Grant

Interested faculty members who want to explore a potential project suitable for a FITI or OER grant are invited to meet with Amy Sugar and Deborah Prosser in the Bookmark Cafe on Wednesday 2/6 (12 – 1 pm) or Thursday 2/7 (1-2 pm). We will buy you a cup of coffee.

The online grant application is due on 2/28/19. Please let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to hearing from you.

The 2019 Open Educational Resources (OER) Grant aims to accomplish three main goals:

  • Significantly lower the cost of required materials (i.e. textbooks) to enrolled students in a specific course.
  • Maintain and improve student learning outcomes and satisfaction with the required materials.
  • Contribute to the growing body of OER available to the global higher education community.

Grants in the form of stipends of up to $3000 are available for Rollins faculty members interested in working with a team consisting of the Director of the Endeavor Center for Faculty Development, an instructional technologist, and a librarian to lower the textbook costs for students in a specific course using Open Educational Resources (OER). The grant will be for three years, or three iterations of a specific course. Therefore, grants could last for a minimum of three semesters and a maximum of six years. The committee will fund up to one new OER project per academic year. This program is open to both full-time and contingent faculty members teaching in CLA, Crummer, and Holt.
