Faculty Research Sprints, sponsored by the University Libraries, offer faculty the opportunity to partner with a team of expert librarians on a specific project, or component of a broader project. Sprints differ from one-time consultations in their timing and depth of interaction. The intent is for the entire team—faculty and librarians—to work without distractions to produce a tangible product or outcome.
Potential project areas include, but are not limited to:
Data and metadata creation, management, analysis, and preservation
Digital scholarship project development (GIS mapping, data visualization, etc.)
Open educational resource creation (open textbooks, teaching videos, etc.)
Pedagogy and instructional design (course assignment redesign, learning objects, etc.)
Publication proposal or journal creation
Literature and scoping reviews or annotated bibliographies
University Libraries will host an Information Session on the Faculty Research Sprints from 12:30 – 1:30pm on February 15 in 401 Walter Library. Interested faculty are invited to attend to learn more about the program, discuss the application process, and share their project ideas with each other.
To RSVP, please email Shanda Hunt (firstname.lastname@example.org).
