factoryThe Faculty Factory community grew out of our desire to share resources to support faculty development. Part of this work has been a podcast series which has been turned into a free eBook for you: Snippets for Success: An eBook Brought to You by the Faculty Factory Community. The eBook is a collection of the top podcast “snippet” episodes sorted by topic (communication, education, leadership, mentorship, research & scholarship, and wellness). Each episode includes top takeaways and questions for your self-reflection (as well as a direct link to the actual recording). After listening to some of the podcasts, if you would like to record your own ~10-30 minute episode for the new 2022 season (Theme: “Leadership Lessons: Career Development Pains and Gains”), just email m Dr. Kim Skarupski, at Hopkins ( to set-up your zoom audio-recorded conversation.
