Instructional Development is your one-stop shop on campus for help with any aspect of teaching and learning. Unique in the UC System for having the faculty consultation and classroom and educational technology support units literally all under one roof, we are here to help! The friendly and experienced staff in the Office of Instructional Consultation are available for individual consultations, as well as group workshops on all aspects of pedagogy, instructional design, and research on teaching and learning. The staff of Classroom Services are available to provide advice and assistance in using all of the instructional technologies in the General Assignment classrooms; as well as assistance with key elements of the campus’ education technology ecosystem such as Panopto, Gradescope, iClicker Cloud, and Nectir. We also provide advice and support related to all aspects of event audio-visual production, and video and photographic documentation for events.

New (and Nearly-new) Faculty Orientation

October 21 and 28, 2022, 10-11:30am in 1576 Library

Given the nature of the last couple of years, we are including all faculty hired since 2019! This two-session gathering will help you:

  • hone research-based strategies for equitable and just teaching in our minority-serving institution; 
  • provide time for you to get to know colleagues; and 
  • introduce you to resources that will support your growth as a faculty member.
