Compass Program for Academic Advancement
The American Dental Education Association/Academy for
Academic Leadership Compass
Program for Academic Advancement is an online course that provides early
and mid-career faculty with an understanding of the culture of higher
education. The Compass Program presents a variety of skills faculty need for
career advancement in many institutions—conducting educational research,
writing grant applications, publishing articles and reports, and career
planning—with the convenience and affordability of distance learning.
Each module consists of a series of readings; a live, online
session of 90 minutes that is recorded and saved on AAL's learning management
system for downloading; and a follow-up exercise where you will post your
assignment on a discussion board and receive feedback from a Compass instructor
and fellow participants.
