Request for Proposal for Teaching Conference Award for 2020-2021 

Application Guidelines and Form

The purpose of the grant is to enhance CSUSB faculty members’ TEACHING portfolio by attending a virtual conference/webinar/online training devoted to university teaching, a high-impact practice, evidence-based practice, a newly developed teaching practice, or teaching research.

 

Introducing Workshops on Demand

The purpose of the Workshops on Demand initiative is to help meet the emergent teaching needs that faculty members may face with developing a new course, teaching a course for the first time, or simply wanting to enhance their course through implementation of innovative methods.

These expert-led workshops are evidence-based, customizable to the unique needs of faculty of diverse disciplines, and provide in-depth support of emergent faculty needs.

Option 1: Mini workshops with customizable content and time.  Ideally for individual faculty needing one-on-one support on specific topics.

Option 2: How-to workshops with customizable content. These 60-90-minute discussions are ideal for small groups of faculty members (5 or less) with a shared teaching topic of interest. Content is focused on guidance on implementation and assessment of innovative teaching method.

Option 3: Series workshops with customizable content. These 60-minute workshops are ideal for larger number (more than 5) of faculty with shared interest of learning about a novel teaching method (such as, discipline specific teaching methods). 

To request a workshop email us at: trc@csusb.edu (Subject Line: Workshops on Demand)

Examples of recent Workshops on Demand: Syllabus guidelines, rubric development, assessment, course organization, frequent feedback to and from students.
