New Faculty Mentoring
New faculty are assigned a mentor to assist and support them as they join the community of Jefferson College educators. The primary goals are improving teaching and learning and improving the quality of professional relationships. These mentors provide monthly workshops on best practices used in teaching and assessment of expected learning outcomes, they offer periodic evaluation of classroom performance, and they provide teaching demonstration opportunities.
Faculty Development Mentoring
Faculty are provided opportunities to increase their teaching effectiveness in traditional and online environments through courses offered several times per year. Applied pedagogy and hands-on activities ensure Jefferson College instructors have a strong foundation in the most effective teaching practices. In addition, stipends are awarded for successful completion of each course. Faculty interested in taking one of these courses should complete the Request for Enrollment in a Professional Development Course.
- JC101: Orientation to Teaching
JC101 is a fully online orientation session that covers College policies, procedures and available resources. Faculty converse with their colleagues as they work through the course material at their own pace over three weeks. They receive extensive support from the Division of Online Learning throughout the course as they develop skills be as successful as possible from their first semester at the College.
- Faculty Certification Course for Online and Hybrid Teaching
Online courses require teaching techniques that can differ greatly from traditional classroom instruction. Prior to teaching online or hybrid courses, faculty must complete this course. The program equips full-time and adjunct faculty with the basic skills necessary to create a successful online learning environment for students.
