ASEE Conference 2018 workshop session
Faculty Development Research Project
Description: The session was a hands-on gathering to develop research projects that will build on a National Science Foundation funded research agenda on holistic STEM faculty development. The intended audience included researchers interested in understanding holistic STEM faculty development (FD) that examines holistic development on research, teaching, leadership and service. The session included an introduction to the research agenda and activities geared towards participants leaving with a concrete plan for development of a research project of their own. The goals of the session were to:
- Examine the research agenda and all of its components and
- Develop the foundation for research projects that the participants wish to pursue.

CoNECD Conference 2018 workshop session
Placing Equity Front and Center in STEM Faculty Development Research
Description: This workshop involved participants in continuing work that was designed to bring together multiple stakeholders in academia, government, and industry to provide input to a research agenda for STEM faculty development (FD), particularly considering inclusion and diversity. The intended audience included those policy-makers, decision-makers and researchers that are interested and engaged in holistic (teaching, research, leadership, service) faculty development with a focus on equity. The session included participants reflecting on own experiences in faculty development at their institutions, discussions of current status of the agenda, and group activities to suggest additions to the research agenda. The specific goal of this workshop was to focus on strengthening the components of the research agenda that examine equity in such areas:
- Impact of holistic STEM FD on the establishment or refinement of inclusive cultures and institutions.
- Defining FD practices that support inclusive cultures including eliminating stigmas around being “different.”
- Establishing FD practices that meet the needs of non-traditional faculty (professors of practice, teaching, other new forms of academic positions).
- Support where faculty identity or research interests do not mesh with their academic environment, and where faculty are new to academia, are from marginalized communities, or otherwise feel isolated.
- Impact of FD on issues of diversity and work/life balance.

EEC Conference 2017 workshop session
Strategies for NSF-Funded Workshop Development and Implementation
Description: This session was a hands-on gathering to develop NSF workshops that will disseminate results and/or engage stakeholders at various points of a project. The intended audience included researchers desiring application of their results, broader awareness of their findings, and collaborations with other researchers, policy-makers, and decision-makers. The session included an introduction presentation with definitions, background on benefits, and case studies of successful NSF workshops and activities geared towards participants leaving with a concrete plan for development of a workshop of their own. The goals of the proposed session were
- Examine workshops as vehicles for sharing research results of projects with those who can apply them to their circumstances or developing collaborations for the next steps of a research project
- Develop the foundation for specific workshops that the participants wish to hold.

FIE Conference 2017 workshop session
Special Session: STEM Faculty Development Research Agenda
Description: This session involved participants to continue the work undertaken during the How Many Hats Do You Wear workshop participants and the SFDC team. The session tried to bring together multiple stakeholders in academia, government, and industry to contribute to the establishment and refinement of the national research agenda. The intended audience included all those interested in furthering research agenda. The goals of this session were
- Present a process model for the creation of a draft research agenda (NSF grant #EEC-1551605) and for use in an additional NSF workshop (NSF grant #EEC-1638888)
- Describe the preliminary research agenda initiated for STEM faculty development that focuses on holistic areas of teaching, research, service, and leadership
- Engage participants in reviewing and revising the agenda
- Involve participants, and the greater community, in determining and disseminating the next steps of the agenda
