Welcome to Faculty Development at Whittier College
Our goals are to support and promote the achievement of excellence in teaching by inspiring and empowering all faculty to identify opportunities to improve student learning, investigate and employ appropriate strategies and techniques, evaluate outcomes, and share experiences to grow our learning community.
The goal of each faculty development workshop is to create a learning community in which we can share ideas and tools that help us improve our teaching and advising. We want to do more than simply offer workshops. We want to build a culture of continuing education in a way that renews and reenergizes; we want to build a climate of peer support, trust, and even fun as we do the hard work of rethinking and retooling.
Faculty Development at Whittier College offers various learning opportunities for faculty through workshops, one-on-one support in designing new technology-based assignments or projects and hybrid or online learning tools and techniques.
