This Lessons Learned Paper describes a year-long faculty development pilot program that was designed to help a team of faculty to engage in collaborative and potentially risky (in terms of funding and publishing) research. The group of eleven faculty from six different academic units included all ranks from a brand new assistant professor to several full professors. The initial event in our program was an off-site two and a half day retreat that began with an exploration of the groups members’ personal and professional values. This activity served as the core for the remainder of the academic year – these values were repeatedly revisited when discussing the implications of the team working together on wicked research problems. This paper will discuss the background and implementation of our program, along with key lessons learned and how we are building on those lessons.
