Given Todd’s extensive experience in faculty development for 20 years in a variety of types of institutions, regions, and faculty served, we have asked him to write a series on essential issues needed by directors of faculty development efforts. This series is designed to suggest areas for faculty developers to consider along with tips and techniques Todd has found to be helpful along the way. In this issue, Todd focuses on what programs to offer. Possible future topics will include how to get and maintain support on campus, bringing outside experts to campus, assessing/documenting your successes, and strategic planning. If there is a specific topic you would like to see addressed, contact the Editor-in-Chief at firstname.lastname@example.org.
