The Center for Faculty Innovation space on campus houses a casual gathering space, a conference room with a TV that is AirTame enabled, a copy machine and computer tied to a printer, and a variety of materials and books to support your teaching. The CFI also houses Stacy Leno and Kelli Hallsten Erickson’s on-campus office spaces.
Because Lake Superior College believes that an investment in faculty is an investment in student success, the Center for Faculty Support and Innovation develops, facilitates, and promotes a comprehensive professional development program for faculty and staff designed to support a dynamic teaching and learning environment.
The Center for Faculty Innovation is the cornerstone for faculty professional development, wherein faculty feel valued as content specialists and professionals in their fields by students, staff, and administration. The CFI understands the importance of continuous improvement as an AQIP institution in faculty performance as instructors and colleagues, and by harnessing the power of each other’s expertise along with outside resources, including other colleagues in the Minnesota State system and local institutions, we can provide effective instruction in the online, on ground, and hybrid formats for our students.
