ITL Mission Statement
The Institute for Teaching and Learning (ITL) is an Academic Senate committee whose mission is to advocate for a strong and diverse professional development program for faculty at Saddleback College, to coordinate faculty training opportunities that promote excellence in teaching, and to ensure the highest level of student learning both inside and outside of the classroom. The ITL provides a framework for the consolidation of information about faculty professional development on campus through the maintenance of a SharePoint site, distribution of a newsletter, coordination of a faculty mentorship program, and the creation of several key professional development activities related to student equity, high engagement teaching, and other pedagogical practices.
Please visit our webpage for Professional Development to browse a list of opportunities for faculty. (There is also a link in the red menu on the right.) This list is updated as new opportunities become available. Please check frequently for updates. Faculty should report professional development (flex) hours on this webpage: PD Week and Flex Reporting.
Agendas, minutes, and other official documents are available on the ITL Committee's Sharepoint site.
