- The CSU has a Professional Learning Communitydedicated to Course Redesign (with Technology). The PLC includes faculty from all 23 campuses and offers biweekly Zoom meetings with interesting speakers. The meetings are also recorded and available on the PLC website. Besides speakers from within the CSU, there are also many nationally known presenters.
Of particular interest to CSUSB faculty, we suggest the recordings/slides/handouts of these sessions:
- Measuring the Promise of a Learner-Center Syllabus: Creating Courses Students Will Love to Take and You Will Love to Teach (Whitney Scott and Ashley Sampson) (October 2016 and October 2017)
- Academic Mindsets for Learner Success (Emily Magruder)
- Student Learning Outcomes (October 2015)
- Mindful Inclusion in the Classroom, created by Vipin Gupta, 2016. Includes Introduction & Overview (PPT) plus Classroom Manual with extensive appendices.
