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 teach workshops.
This includes:
  • designing, running and evaluating programs including events and workshops as well as professional development
  • coaching best practices in course development , teaching methods, creating assignments and evaluating student work in online, blended learning and face-to-face classes
  • helping individual instructors identify their goals
  • researching, analyzing and sharing teaching models and learning theories
  • helping faculty integrate educational technology in their classrooms
  • helping with needs assessments

Our faculty development coordinators support both campuses.
