The Office of Faculty Development promotes faculty success by using evidence-based practices to support their teaching, scholarly and creative activities, and involvement in the community. By fulfilling this mission, the Office of Faculty Development will empower faculty to (1) apply effective learning-centered teaching practices, (2) develop habits that lead to increased fulfillment in scholarly and creative activities, and (3) cultivate a sense of meaningful involvement in the community.
Faculty directors coordinate programs such as New Faculty Orientation, faculty learning communities, workshops, teaching and learning institutes, and writing series. The Office of Faculty Development also administers internal grants, such as The University Corporation Learning-Centered Grant, Probationary Faculty Grants and the Competition for Attending a Teaching Conference Grant. The website offers a Teaching Toolkit resource replete with local CSUN faculty sharing their best teaching practices.
