Center for Faculty Excellence
The Center for Faculty Excellence creates professional development opportunities in multiple modalities to support high quality teaching and learning. These include instructor facilitated courses such as the New Faculty Orientation, University Research Reviewer, and Dissertation and Doctoral Study Mentoring courses.
The Center hosts synchronous webinars and each offering is archived for distribution. In MyLearn, faculty can complete self-paced tutorials or read manuscripts. In addition, the Center provides longer professional development seminars in the form of Juntos.
