- Model or test innovative teaching strategies in the FCT&L Classroom;
- Participate in various university events (by attending, facilitating, or helping to plan);
- Attend two planned meetings/year (one at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters), to outline initiatives and discuss upcoming events. Check-in meetings may occur throughout the semester as well, when there are pressing agenda items for the group to discuss.
