The Faculty Professional Development program at Lane provides means for faculty to: a) accommodate changes in disciplines, technology, pedagogy, and expectations of students, faculty and the community; b) contribute to their profession; c) collaborate with other faculty and the community; and d) increase their capacity to professionally grow and teach. Our program is unique in that it is led by faculty, for faculty.
