Faculty Academy is a long running faculty development activity at the University of Mary Washington (UMW), with this year's theme "Are We There Yet? Reflecting on 15 Years of Teaching and Learning Technologies". Each year, Faculty Academy brings together faculty and staff from the University of Mary Washington to share and celebrate the year’s efforts and accomplishments in the classroom, with teaching and learning technologies as the specific focus (or, one might say, catalyst) of the event. In their spirit of open collaboration, Faculty Academy is also open to educators from other regional institutions to attend, as well as an even larger audience who tune in via the web.
