Teaching & Learning Group
Co-sponsored by the Office of Undergraduate Studies, and the Faculty Center, the Teaching and Learning Group is a cross-divisional group of faculty, staff, administrators, and graduate students (who are teaching in the classroom) committed to enriching the teaching and learning experience at CSUSM.
In fall 2014, we kicked-off the group with the question, “What is it that you hope every CSUSM college student experiences as a learner on this campus?” From this discussion, we identified four key goals:
|Inspires educational experiences that develop every student’s intrinsic desire to learn.|
|Helps students develop skills to facilitate their own learning process so that they become agents of their own learning.|
|Fosters real-world application of knowledge to local and global societal and economic challenges.|
|Recognizes the academic and personal struggles associated with learning and provides a network of resources to address those struggles as students work toward academic success|

The T&L Group has resulted in many initiatives that support students and faculty at CSUSM, including:
- Instituting workshops on "Rethining Your Syllabus"
- Facilitating workshops to develop growth mindset in writing assignments
- Offering "Book Club" events that explore current topics in pedagogy
- Providing recommendations that improve outreach to students who are struggling academically
