Brunswick Faculty Institute

By fostering collaboration, encouraging introspection, and sustaining growth in teaching, the Brunswick Faculty Institute provides a cohesive, year-long, process-oriented professional development experience that seeks to support, motivate, and inspire our educators.
In the words of Head of School Tom Philip, “The Faculty Institute will be truly unique to Brunswick. We’re so proud of our faculty. We need to make sure we build into their cycle of experience opportunities for updating and renewing enthusiasm for their craft…” 

As envisioned, the BFI is a year-long, in-house professional development program beginning at the start of the academic year and ending with a 3-day intensive session the following June. The main purpose of this initiative is to provide an opportunity for teachers to meet as a community of educators in order to share ideas, to discuss issues involving "Teaching & Learning," and to engage in meaningful, relevant workshops. Ultimately, the BFI places teachers in a position to learn from each other. Also embedded in the program is the "BFI Lecture Series," where noted speakers from the field of education are invited to campus to provide insight throughout the year.

Now, in its second cycle, the BFI focuses on a deep dive into our curriculum. Thus, starting in 2017, academic departments comprise the Institute cohorts:
  • 2017-2018: Arts and English Departments
  • 2018-2019: Computer Science, Math, Science Departments
  • 2019-2020: Classics, History, Social Sciences, and Modern Language Departments
