Stipend Policy as determined by the Faculty Commons Council

Most Faculty Commons workshops advancing teaching, learning and assessment frameworks and methodologies offer participants the opportunity to earn a stipend. The workshops with a stipend available may include such activities as scholarly reading, reflective writing, curriculum revision, lesson planning, classroom observations, or presentations. Stipends are a flat rate and are tied to deliverables and hours. To receive the stipend, participants must be a current BC faculty member and successfully complete the course and its activities, as well as provide feedback in the form of a course evaluation.

Instructors may take a workshop more than once but will receive a stipend only once per workshop. A current faculty member is defined as faculty with a teaching, library, or counseling assignment for the quarter in which the workshop is completed or, for summer only, a current faculty member is defined as full-time or adjunct faculty with a teaching, library, or counseling contract in the previous academic year who expect to receive a teaching, library, or counseling contract with BC in the upcoming academic year.

To be eligible to receive a stipend, you may be asked to show that you meet these requirements.
