GSC's Faculty Development & Learning Network Portal
GSC has been working to build a Faculty Development & Learning Network Portal since 2016. These resources are primarily located within the GSC Faculty Lounge within Moodle.
Training topics are informed by our three-pronged evaluation process. These efforts combine the perspectives of students, peers, and our own voices as faculty members to create effective professional development topics as well as opportunities for online collaboration and dialog.
Due to licensing requirements, most of our sessions are available in the GSC Faculty Lounge.
The following training recordings from the 2017 Faculty Development Series are available for view:
