Professional Development

Columbus State offers a variety of professional development opportunities for faculty and staff to improve as educators and supporters of student learning. These include peer-led programs, outside experts, classroom and online self-paced learning. Some of these opportunities are coordinated by departments and others are college-wide and guided by faculty committees such as the Faculty Entry Training and Professional Development Committee and Student Success Committee among others. This section provides archived recordings and materials from events, resource links and information about upcoming opportunities.
