1. From Faculty Development:

Dear Colleagues,

Find below a list of faculty workshops offered during the week of 04/21/2014.  You can register online for any of our workshops here:  http://depot.csuprojects.org/fdc/em-code/register/register.jsp?campusid=6.

Faculty Support Services (FSS) includes Faculty Development, Online & Hybrid Support, Media & Academic Technology Services, Research & Sponsored Programs and the Library.  Our workshop schedules are now presented jointly in an effort to promote our services more clearly and cohesively to CSUEB faculty.  We hope that this will help faculty find the support they need more quickly and easily.  Your feedback is welcome!  

Please let us know if you have any questions at all!
