The goals of Strategic Planning within the Faculty Development framework are:
To encourage, support, and empower faculty excellence in teaching and learning.
To build capacity and foster pathways for advancement within NorQuest through the acquisition of formal credentials in teaching.
To move NorQuest College’s culture toward a learning culture by modelling and rewarding life-long learning.
To create a learning organization.
The strategies to achieve these important goals include the formation of advisory committees and a task force with representation from all Divisions to explore faculty awards/recognition, and the development of a learning index that is connected to faculty evaluation practices and the Canadian Council on Learning’s Composite Learning Index.
