Faculty Resource Center

Mission: The mission of the SBCC Faculty Resource Center (FRC) is to provide instructional consultation and support to educational program faculty and departments so that students can successfully achieve their course and institutional student learning outcomes (SLOs).

The FRC serves the mission of the college by providing the following services to faculty and staff: (See the PDF to read the FRC's SLOs).

  • Pedagogically-focused training - in teaching strategies for on campus (including smart or technology equipped classrooms) and online classes. We offer training in a variety of tools geared toward teachers’ skill levels, goals, and interests. Take a peek at our technology planning matrix.
  • Consultation and advisement about teaching strategies, technologies' selection, and creation of universally-designed course materials – Probably the most important service we offer is planning and consultation. Our job is to listen to your needs and goals and provide advice about how to proceed. Sometimes that includes technology solutions but it always includes pedagogical strategies. So don’t be bashful.
