The Monday Motivator

One of NCFDD’s most popular resources, the Monday Motivator is a weekly email that provides positive energy, good vibes, and a productivity tip. Each Monday Motivator is a micro-learning opportunity to reinforce the ideas presented in Core Curriculum webinars.

The Core Curriculum

NCFDD's Core Curriculum is designed to teach you the 10 key skills necessary to thrive in the Academy. We define "thriving" as having extraordinary teaching, writing and research (should you choose) productivity AND having a full and healthy life off-campus.

NCFDD offers a variety of Guest Expert Webinars designed to meet your needs. Their Multi-Week Courses are intensive series offered by expert facilitators to tackle the Academy's most pressing challenges.
