Faculty Development is dedicated to supporting faculty in their multiple roles as teachers, scholars, artists and members of the University’s academic community. Its goals are to promote effective teaching and learning practices, foster professional growth, strengthen collegial ties and support the scholarship of teaching and learning.
The office is responsible for coordinating new faculty orientation programs; designing workshops, seminars, discussions and learning communities for CSUN faculty to meet Faculty Development’s goals; coordinating the selection of recipients of funding for Judge Julian Beck Learning-Centered Instructional Projects (Beck Grants), Probationary Faculty Grants, and the Competition for Attending Teaching Conferences; and providing resources on best practices in teaching and learning.
