Guidelines for Faculty Support for Professional Development Activities or Presentations
SC ATE Center of Excellence
September 1, 1999-August 31, 2000
During year four, the SC ATE Center of Excellence will continue to offer project-sponsored,
in-state events for all project participants, such as the annual Instructional Leadership Institute (formerly called the "Faculty Retreat"). Participation in and travel to project-sponsored events, as well as for ad hoc team work, curriculum development or pilot testing, will be covered by the Center.
1999-2000 Priorities for Professional Development Activities or Presentation Funding
Other activities (activities not hosted by the Center) for ATE Exemplary Faculty and
designated others will be supported as follows: (a)Cost-sharing basis with the colleges. The
SC ATE Center of Excellence will provide 50% of the cost, up to $750/person/event, for teams
of two (2) SC ATE Exemplary Faculty, college administrators, and other faculty to participate
in approved professional development or dissemination activities related to specific grant
objectives. Proposal forms are available on the project website (http://www.scate.org) and may be
submitted at any time during the grant year.
(b) Attending/participating at the request of the SC ATE Management Team. When participation has been specifically solicited, the full cost of attending the event will be provided by the grant with the understanding that the
participant will have certain pre-determined obligations to the project. These "obligations" might range from making a specific presentation at the event on behalf of the Project to providing professional development for others using skills or knowledge gained at the event via an ATE Roundtable or other activity. SC ATE support will not exceed $1,500 per person for any single event.
