Supporting instructional excellence: Faculty development

Learning isn't just a student activity

Whether you are a rookie or veteran college instructor, faculty development and support  has resources to assist you as you prepare, teach and evaluate your students.
 
Our faculty development coordinators work with faculty, department chairs and other Learning Commons staff to create programs and resources, evaluate and assess needs and facilitate or tech workshops.
 
That role includes:
  • design, run and evaluate programming including events and workshops as well as more information professional development
  • coach best practices in  course development , teaching methods, creating assignments and evaluating student work in online, blended learning and face-to-face classes
  • help individual instructors identify their goals
  • research, analyze and share teaching models and learning theories
  • help faculty integrate educational technology in their classrooms
  • do needs assessments
One of the annual events is new faculty orientation.
 
Check the tiles and links to details about each of these activities and resources.
 
Our faculty development coordinators work out of both campuses.
