Program Objectives:

The objectives of the pedagogy enhancement program are:

  • To increase the teaching and scholarly effectiveness of individual faculty or groups of faculty by acquiring currency, developing innovative strategies, or changing, augmenting or restructuring educational programs to improve student learning and/or the quality of programs of study;
  • To respond to the varied needs of our diverse student population, and
  • To disseminate the results of the project. 

Funded projects respond to the varied needs of our diverse student population and results are disseminated both locally and nationally.

Eligibility Requirements:

Probationary and tenured Sacramento State faculty in Unit 3 is eligible to apply for all programs. Full and part-time temporary faculty are eligible to apply for monetary support but are not eligible for assigned time or a summer fellowship.  Please note that funding for temporary faculty is contingent upon that faculty member receiving a contract indicating intent to employ for an average of at least six weighted teaching units per semester.
