Faculty Development provides relevant and thought-provoking programming to support all faculty in their teaching, scholarship, service and leadership journeys. Programming and partnerships are informed by equity-mindedness, technology-enriched best practices and data-informed inquiry. The Faculty Development team seeks a supportive culture of shared power that engages with the well-being and success of both faculty and students.
The team develops and implements key programs, such as New Faculty Foundations, faculty learning communities (e.g., learning-centered syllabus, equity-minded teaching, transforming STEM teaching, new faculty FLCs) and eLearning programming (e.g., eLearning Institute, Online Teaching and Learning Series). In addition, Faculty Development hosts keynote speakers, teaching and learning institutes, workshops (e.g., Active Learning Ambassadors), and writing productivity and accountability series. Faculty Development also administers internal grants and offers a Teaching Toolkit replete with self-paced, evidence-based teaching practices and ideas from local CSUN faculty sharing their best teaching practices.
