Philosophy of Community and Technical College Education: Fall Term

Fall Course Dates: August 1st – January 15th

This is one of the four required courses for the fulfillment of the teaching and learning competency requirement included in Part 8 of System Procedure 3.32.1 College Faculty Qualifications.

“College faculty members newly hired into unlimited positions, including counselors and librarians, shall successfully complete the teaching and learning competency requirement within six academic-year semesters from the date of hire or conversion into an unlimited position.”

This non-credit course was developed by system office faculty development staff with input from Minnesota State faculty members and has received Quality Matters certification.  Although this course is required of all new unlimited college faculty, it is open to any Minnesota State college faculty member who wishes to complete it.

In this course, faculty will learn about their faculty roles and responsibilities and how these fit into the large context of the Minnesota State system and higher education, be introduced to elements of quality course design and culturally responsive teaching, and interact with other Minnesota State faculty in discussions focused on improving learning and teaching.
