Faculty Development Opportunities

Thursday, August 27, 2020

Faculty Development is excited to announce that 2020 – 2021 courses are available for registration. This year, faculty are collaborating with Faculty Development to redesign courses for the online modality to meet your needs in these current times (Face-to-face courses may be added in future terms, aligned with the phases of reopening.). These courses are designed to deepen faculty members’ understanding of the Essential Competencies of a Valencia Educator.

A focal point for our schedule of courses collegewide will continue to be equity-minded practice. In addition to our current schedule, we are also planning a new Equity-Minded Practice Series, to be announced in September. This series will be:

  • Developed and facilitated by Valencia colleagues and external experts.
  • Focused on critical reflection and equity-minded teaching practices, more specifically, racial and intersectional equity.
  • Will lead up to Destination 2021 with a continued focus on equity.
