Small Group Instructional Feedback is a formative, mid-course check-in process to gather information about student learning experience to inform faculty's pedagogical decisions. You will work with a small group of colleagues from different departments to gather and share information about student experience in a confidential, non-evaluative process. The SGIF process is designed to be a valuable tool to examine and enhance your teaching, and it is intentionally separate from official peer observation processes that may be part of departmental retention, tenure, and promotion.

The GWAR learning community is a discussion-based support course for current and future GWAR instructors. Together, we will share our strategies for workload management, student engagement, grading, peer review, and best practices in the teaching of reading and writing. The learning community will meet over the course of 3 synchronous Zoom meetings; there will be some asynchronous activities as well. The total time commitment is 10 hours and participants who successfully complete the learning community will be eligible for $500 stipends. Participants from last year’s GWAR learning community who could not complete the course are particularly encouraged to apply.

Join us as we explore ways in which journalling can be used as a JEDI pedagogical tool and consider how journalling can be incorporated as a reflective teaching practice. We will think about how journalling can be used as a way to reflect on and organize our professional careers as educators. We will also discuss how we might use journals and journalling as a tool for student success.
Lecturer Faculty teaching at least one course this semester are eligible for a $50 stipend.
Please register for one or more of our JEDI workshops on our intake form.

Come! Join fellow faculty in structured, dedicated and quiet writing time.
SF State Transforms and CEETL will host weekly faculty writing meet-ups during the Fall 2023 semester. Sessions will provide brief opportunities for faculty to check-in about their writing and ample time to quietly work on individual writing projects. This writing meet-up is part of Transforms and CEETL’s continued efforts to create greater faculty scholarship on campus.
In Fall 2023, please join CEETL and Academic Technology as we examine adapting and emerging best practices in teaching and learning with Artificial Intelligence. We would like to invite you to a series of discussion circles focusing on conversations around use of AI in the classroom. These discussion circles are intended to meet faculty where they are in their response to AI technology as it impacts their instruction – whether curious, concerned, already using AI in assignments, prohibiting AI, or those in between and looking for path forward. We hope to see you in person and online. These conversations will be facilitated by Fall 2023 CEETL Fellow, Jennifer Trainor, Professor of English.
Please sign up for one or more of these Discussion Circles with this form.
