Faculty Summer Professional Developent

September 12, 2015

Gould faculty members were busy this summer doing a variety of professional development projects! Projects ranged from experiential to academic, from wilderness first aid to digital literacy, and from the Maine coast to Brazil. Ask a faculty member below what he or she was up to this summer, and I’m sure you’ll get a lot of great stories – not to mention tales about Jay’s grand bike trip across Europe!
