New Faculty Support Center Now Available!

Betsy Price, Director for the Center for Teaching & Learning shares the following message with us:

We have created a Faculty Support Center in the Center for Teaching and Learning.  By innovative construction and conniving we have created a center with two PC's, 4 iBooks and a hospitality center for faculty to use at any time.  

The computers will be loaded with software faculty can use to create interactive textbooks, video lectures and activities, and build interactive electronic materials and tools. We will provide pedagogical assistance as well as technical. Full time faculty and contingent faculty can come at any time to  learn how to blend learning theory, instructional design and navigation design to improve learning for blended, ground and online courses.  

It is not just a technology center; we will help faculty with assessments, hands on learning, case studies and experiential learning.

Convocation week spring 2014 we will have a grand opening.  We still have some final touches to do, but if you have faculty that need support now, direct them to the center.

We are at LHSB 1.704 in the corner across from the Healing Gardens. Look for an overturned pot, restfully spitting out water. Our hours will change next semester to provide evening and Saturday real person assistance.  

We anticipate that this Support Center will ease faculty into teaching from one campus to multiple campuses.  Please support and direct faculty to our center.  

The office hours of the CTL will be Monday Noon to 5 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Wednesday and Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.  he first that third Saturday we will be open from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. However, faculty will be able to contact Campus Security at any time to be let in.

Please let your lecturers and adjuncts who do not have office know about this resource.

Please call me if you have any questions: (956) 882-7334
