The Lecturer’s Resource Course

Lecturers during professional development.

The Office for Faculty Affairs, in collaboration with the Center for Effective Teaching and Learning (CETL), is committed to your teaching success. We are here to support you and the work you do for our students. This resource is the result of extensive work over the past four years in collaboration with lecturers, department chairs, tenure-track faculty, and campus vice presidents.

One-Stop Resource for Faculty Lecturers

The Lecturer’s Resource Course is an information hub where Cal State LA lecturers can find answers in one-stop. Course content topics are below:

  • Onboarding for new lecturers
  • Getting your courses ready at the start of the semester
  • Common teaching questions during the semester
  • For students: academic and administrative resources
  • For students: health, well-being, and community resources
  • For faculty: campus resources
  • Lecturer professional development resources

These resources were developed as part of the Éxito! Building Student Support and Faculty Quality grant, a project designed to improve student success, retention, and graduation and to close equity gaps among students. The grant seeks to improve student success and belonging among students in their first year and was funded from the U.S. Department of Education's Developing Hispanic Serving Institutions grant program.
