By signing this petition you support the creation of an Academy of Human Resource Development Special Interest Group (SIG) whose focus is on Scholar Learning and Development (SLD). GOAL The goal of the SLD SIG is to provide opportunities for scholars at all career stages to engage in discussion, research, and resource-sharing on issues of faculty development. Topics may include, but are not limited to, instructional methodology and strategies, curriculum development and assessment, faculty career development issues, research and publishing skills, grant writing and development, classroom management, departmental or program leadership, and scholar research and development. OBJECTIVES The Objectives of the SLD SIG as currently proposed are: 1. Support and promote research and practice that supports effective scholar teaching, development, leadership, and research. 2. Encourage publications related to scholar learning and development. 3. Sponsor faculty development to foster engagement, dialogue, and collaborative research and development opportunities for faculty at all levels of an educational setting. 4. Sponsor conference events related to Scholar Learning and Development issues. 5. Support related tracks with conference papers, abstracts, and reviewers with an interest in scholar learning and development issues. 6. Sponsor conference activities (e.g., food-thought sessions, innovative sessions, pre-conference events) on scholar learning and development issues. MEMBERSHIP Membership in the SLD SIG is open to any AHRD member with an interest in scholar learning and development issues
