Full-time faculty members will be given an overview of three best practices that are related to the specific theme for the upcoming year. Each full-time faculty member shall then, in consultation with his or her academic dean, select one of the nine specific related implementable initiatives for additional training and subsequent implementation in one course section in the fall and spring. Through this process, the institution can maximize its opportunity to enhance student learning across all majors/programs while mitigating the risk that the project will become too large and unmanageable. For example,the following visually depicts the tie between the first year's theme, self-regulated learning, the three best practices associated with self-regulated learning, and the nine implementable initiatives.
