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:
Earning & Redeeming CEUs
In appreciation for participation in our program many of our workshops, as well as a few other educational endeavors, are eligible to earn CEUs. CEUs are points that can be accumulated at Rose State College and later redeemed for various awards or cash. Please the following document to view the list of awards, as well as the variety of ways CEU’s can be earned, along with other details of the program.
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!!
