Faculty Inquiry Groups (FIGs) explore innovative instructional methodologies, alternative
delivery systems, pilot new instructional methods and implement solutions based on
data obtained from their action research projects. They share best practices from
these piloted activities and invite input from colleagues.
Faculty who attend conferences and symposiums are welcome to provide input during
the FIG sessions.

"The academy has shown me a lot more than I even suspected. It's showed me the physical demands that you need to reach and the instructors push you over the limits just so that when go to do the real thing you can achieve that. You'll push yourself and eventually reach the limits that you thought you were never capable of. You get really hands-on with all your crew and working with each of the instructors. The most valuable thing that I've learned in the academy is learning to work to your own level of excellence. Being at the college has been a great experience."
