Faculty & Staff

Faculty Development

Excellence in teaching is essential to student success and the  mission of Rose State College. We make faculty development a priority by investing in our faculty through continuous learning opportunities that will  enhance instructional strategies, expand the use of academic technologies, and enrich instructor-student interactions.  The  premise is that by investing in our faculty, we are investing in the future of  Rose State College and the success of our students.  Faculty are one of the critical influences to  positive student outcomes.   Our training  is available to all full-time and adjunct faculty.

Workshops & Training

Each semester we  offer a variety of workshops and technical training surrounding issues such as  instructional design, student motivation, creating new content, how to use the  academic technology resources we have on campus, etc. Please click the link  below to view and register for upcoming workshops:

Badges

New in 2015-2016  are acknowledgement badges (really they are buttons, but “badges” sounds cool).  These beauties will be available to faculty who have met  various standards or criteria associated with each badge.  Our wonderful badges —which will look lovely  on any lanyard, computer bag, or bulletin board—are currently under development  and should be revealed as the semester progresses. Stay tuned for “Badge Alert” updates!!

Individual Training & Custom Workshops

Do you  need help working on a specific project? Are you working to solve a design  problem in an online or on-campus course? Have you been to a workshop and would  now like help with implementation? Does your department or division have a  common need for a specific training? If you answered yes to any of the previous  questions, feel free to contact us and set up some one-on-one or small group  consulting time.  Please send a note  using d2lsupport.rose.edu and let us know what you need.
