Professional Development

Consulting and Referrals

The Center offers individual, confidential help regarding instructional design and the development of instructional materials. We assist faculty in assessing their own teaching, e.g., by videotaping a class session. It also assists faculty in locating and accessing teaching resources on campus.

Transfer and Dissemination

The Center promotes mentoring among colleagues and will assist in arranging faculty visitations. Through newsletters and this website, the Center reports on grant activities related to instructional development and learning productivity. Teaching strategies and innovations by CSUSB faculty are also featured. The Center sponsors exhibits of faculty projects related to teaching strategies and innovations.

Special Projects and Services

A three-year program for New Faculty is conducted by TRC in cooperation with the Office of Faculty Affairs and Development. The program supports new faculty in developing their individual agenda on teaching strategies appropriate to their field of study. The Center also provides follow-up services for its workshop participants. This is provided either individually or through group discussions.

Fall Poster Session & Opening Luncheon

Each Fall the TRC sponsors a faculty event featuring posters and discussions related to innovative teaching practices.  This event is followed by a luncheon, talk and discussion of issues related to teaching.

Spring Showcase

In cooperation with ATI, the Spring Faculty Showcase is a PechaKucha/Ignite - style event where faculty have 5 minutes to present their teaching strategies and innovations. This fast-paced mini-conference will give you lots of ideas in just two hours.
