Call for Faculty Fellow 2016-17

The Faculty Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning announces a fellowship opportunity available to CSU Stanislaus faculty members (any rank). Proposed projects for the Faculty Center Fellowship project should bring together colleagues from throughout the campus to foster faculty development in the broadest sense: to sustain dialogues on teaching and learning, to encourage ideas and practices for effective teaching, and/or to support scholarly and creative endeavors. Call for Mini-Grants: Spring 2016

Call for Mini-Grants: Spring 2016

The Faculty Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning invites proposals for grants up to $500 to support efforts to enhance instruction, to promote innovative teaching and learning strategies, and to draw upon your expertise to expand university-wide attention to educational or social issues. Due to very limited resources, we expect the application process this year to be quite competitive.

FCETL Director Marina Gerson

Marina M. Gerson is the Director of the Faculty Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning. She is especially interested in what the data say when it comes to implementing genuine strategies for success in the face-to-face or virtual classroom. This perspective is no doubt a result of many hours mired in statistical analyses; she earned a Ph.D. in Quantitative Biology from University of Texas at Arlington. Marina came to CSU Stanislaus as a Lecturer in 2005 and was hired on the tenure track in 2006, when the previous herpetologist retired; she was promoted to Associate Professor in 2011. She has broadly sampled the Faculty Center’s offerings over the years and encourages you to do the same. Marina invites you to come by the Faculty Development Center to chat pedagogy and share your ideas about how the center can help you to meet your goals. Your every question about lizards, ecology, animal behavior, or the desert are also welcomed.
