Established in the Spring of 2014, the Faculty Commons is JSU's Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning. The Faculty Commons provides faculty training and professional development opportunities for the JSU faculty, our CORE partners in Pk-12 schools, and the JSU community. The Faculty Commons was established in response to Strategic Objective 1.1, which states “the University will create, furnish, equip, and staff a Teaching and Learning Center” (approved 10/17/11).
The Faculty Commons supports all areas of teaching and is open to suggestions and/or requests from faculty concerning the programs offered. In addition, in partnership with Online@JSU, the Faculty Commons strives to support faculty use of technology and online instructional design techniques to the fullest extent possible.
