The focus of the Faculty Mentorship Program is two-fold. First, we aim to foster faculty-to-faculty mentoring relationships that inspire, engage, and build a stronger DSC faculty community. Through these relationships, we aim to help faculty set and achieve individual goals and to align their goals with Daytona State College's institutional learning outcomes: critical/creative thinking, communication skills, cultural literacy, and information and technical literacy.
Mentorship takes place during the fall semester. In addition to working one-on-one with a mentor, participants meet four times as a full cohort: an orientation, two teaching and learning workshops, and a wrap-up session. Each participant's experience will be unique and related to individual goals established early in the semester, but all participants can expect to work on several artifacts related to teaching and learning, professional development, and institutional culture.

WAC/WID: Faculty Fellows Program
Working as a Faculty Fellow in the WAC/WID program gives you the opportunity to collaborate with your peers and lead the campus community in developing multiple literacies in our student population. As a Faculty Fellow in WAC/WID, you are responsible for facilitating the program, which may include mentoring other faculty members, performing classroom observations for program participants, facilitating the Online Program, and/or facilitating the Teaching and Learning Retreat. Compensation for your time is given as a course release or a stipend. Faculty earning program credentials also earn professional development credit for the purposes of continuing education, tenure, and promotion.
