The Regional Professional
Development Centers are dedicated to transforming the quality of teaching
and learning in different areas of the country, leading to increased student
retention and success at all levels. Each development center will host
three different faculty development institutes each year, as part of its
commitment to transforming the quality of teaching and learning in Higher
Education. An individual center has the opportunity to choose its own events,
unique to the needs, culture, and individual goals of each college. Area
colleges are invited to attend each institute in order to bolster the
collaborative relationships among neighboring colleges.
Pacific Crest supports each development center in marketing the
event, by providing customized marketing materials for each event. Announcements
of each event will also be listed on the Pacific Crest website. Skilled
facilitators, handbooks, and journals for individual events are also provided
by Pacific Crest.
