Faculty-Development

Mission Statement

The Faculty Development Program supports the professional development of all Santa Clara faculty as teaching scholars.

Our programs and services promote three general goals:

  1. Help faculty become more effective teachers by exploring how to cultivate student learning.
  2. Support and promote faculty scholarship.
  3. Help faculty plan and manage their academic careers and maintain work-life balance.

Consultations and Confidentiality

The Faculty Development program assures strict confidentiality of consultations with individual faculty regarding teaching, scholarship, and professional development. Our services, including classroom observations, are strictly voluntary, developmental, and confidential; results are shared only with the faculty member and never to be used in a faculty performance evaluation. Classroom observers/consultants may not discuss their findings with anyone but the faculty member, although the faculty member is free to share the written summary of a class/room visit with others, at her or his own discretion. We also strive to provide students complete anonymity when we solicit their feedback on a course during the teaching observation process.

If you have questions or concerns about the confidentiality of Faculty Development consultations, please feel free to contact Eileen Razzari Elrod or call (408) 554-4136
