There shall be nine early implementers annually. This group shall research and pilot the annual student-centered instructional best practice themes one year in advance of the full faculty body, and they will help determine the student-centered instructional best practice initiatives. They shall also aid in hosting workshops and divisional meetings to train the faculty at-large. This organizational structure will further promote buy-in from the faculty at-large since there will be at least one faculty member from each academic division on the Team. Furthermore, it shall provide a voice and input from the students to help direct the project. The CTE Director and the QEP Implementation Team Chair shall provide direction and oversight to the early implementer team.
