Faculty Development Institute (FDI)

Faculty Development Institute (FDI)

The Faculty Development Institute program is dedicated to the development and expansion of Lions faculty. The curriculum focuses on techniques and concepts that will enhance the quality of training and overall effectiveness of Lions leadership development programs. 

Qualified candidates are those Lions who have some experience as faculty members at Lions training events, have demonstrated basic instructional skills, and have a keen interest in further developing those skills. Lions with extensive experience as Lions faculty or as professional trainers are not recommended for this institute but are welcome to apply. Participation is limited to Lions from the Constitutional area noted in the schedule below.

Lions participating in this four-day course will be required to conduct a training event within 6 (six) months of the institute, in order to be considered a graduate of the FDI program.

Applications

Lions who meet the qualifications may apply to the Faculty Development Institute. Applications will be available at least four months prior to the institute. If you are interested in applying to the institute, please download the application for the institute you are eligible to attend from the following list of institutes or obtain a copy of the application from your Global Leadership Team District Coordinator. Because of the high number of applications received by the association, acceptance into the institute is not guaranteed.

Please note that a non-refundable participation fee of US$150.00 will be required to offset a portion of these costs for all institutes. This fee will be due no less than six weeks prior to the institute start date. Please do not send funds until you receive a letter of acceptance to the institute.
