What's New in The Center?

The Center for Teaching Excellence concluded its 6th annual Faculty Summer Institute. The 34 faculty who attended came from 16 different departments, both adjunct and full-time, and ranged from brand new hires all the way to 19 years with SMC.

The camaraderie and sense of community is already strong with this year's group. We look forward to having them involved in this year's events, along with 171 of their fellow FSI alumni from past years.

Want to attend FSI in 2019?

Keep an eye out for FSI announcements from The Center in the Spring. In the meantime, attend one of the many Center-sponsored campus workshops and get to know us!



Data Coach 2018-19 Program Flier

Data Coaching

We’ve Just Certified 12 new Data Coaches!

The Center for Teaching Excellence, in collaboration with the Office of Institutional Research and the Office of Workforce and Economic Development, is offering this exciting professional development opportunity called “Data Coach”!

The Data Coach Program aims to build the research and data capacity of the College by providing faculty intensive training to become certified Data Coaches. As a Data Coach, faculty receive a minimum of 12 hours of training on how to access, analyze, and utilize data for program review, departmental planning, grants, and other college processes. They then “coach” their fellow faculty to get the most of the data available.

Group and Individual Data Coaching Sessions will be available in Spring!

In the meantime, check out our website to see who’s coaching this year.
