We offer ongoing workshops on a wide range of topics including tracks in the art and science of teaching, technology in instruction, and general interest workshops.

2015 Faculty Interests and Training Needs Survey

In order to fully meet your needs, DLF and the Faculty Development Committee request your input about CSM's faculty development offerings.

The purpose of this survey is to learn about the training needs of faculty at the College of Southern Maryland. Results will be reviewed by the Faculty Development Committee, Division of Academic Affairs, and DLF Division as we prepare the training offerings for 2015-2016 academic year.

Thank you for your willingness to share your ideas. It should take you 10-15 minutes to complete this survey.  All participants who include their names at the end of the survey will be entered in a drawing for a fabulous DLF prize!
