Faculty Development

Faculty Development is supported at Estrella Mountain through workshops and seminars scheduled each semester. Enroll through the CTL Workshop Registration link.

EMCC believes that developing and teaching high quality courses is essential to effective student learning.  This is especially true in the online environment. Under the auspices of the Faculty Resource Action Committee for Teaching and Learning (FRACTL), the college administers a course master grants program where faculty are compensated to develop a Quality Matters-aligned course that could be viewed by any employee and used by any qualified faculty at the college. You can learn more about course masters or contact FRACTL leadership for more information.

If you have not been assigned a course by your division chair, residential and adjunct faculty can prepare to teach an online or hybrid course that has already been developed:
