Teaching and Learning

Welcome

Our collective mission at SJSU is to serve our remarkably diverse student body, supporting them as they strive to realize their educational potential.  

IN THE WAKE OF CURRENT EVENTS, AND ISSUES AND CONCERNS THAT MAY BE EMERGING IN YOUR CLASSES AND WITH YOUR STUDENTS, we share materials compiled and curated by Kerry Ann Rockquemore and her colleagues at the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity.  We hope you will find them useful.  As always, please contact us if you would like to discuss them or help organize sessions around them.

IDEAS: Instructional Development for Equity, Accessibility and Success

Our IDEAS program provides faculty an opportunity to receive support on their course design, pedagogy, syllabus, created lessons/modules, and other elements of their instructional assignment.

Faculty Learning Communities@SJSU

Faculty Learning Communities (or FLCs) create spaces for small groups of 6-12 faculty to learn, grow and experiment in relation to a shared commitment or goal. Faculty learning communities support a return to the foundations of teaching by inspiring and empowering faculty to pursue projects that are germane to the institution with regard to student success, teaching and learning.
