Departmental and College Trainings
The Faculty Development center hosts a wide variety of trainings throughout the year that center on improving teaching and learning across campus. Departments and Colleges can request specialized and targeted trainings to meet their specific needs. Trainings can vary from brief Teaching Tip sessions offered at Department meetings to half- or whole-day events.
