Distinguished Honors Faculty Certificate


The FSCJ Distinguished Honors Faculty Certificate Program comprises an 8-hour professional development series for teaching and learning within the Honors Associate in Arts/General Education Degree Program. In addition to learning about the Honors Program in general terms, faculty will explore topics integral to the reimagined program. Workshop participants will explore strategies for: integrating service learning into honors classes; designing an engaging honors course whose syllabus reflects a balance of rigor, relevance, and equity; creating an academic and social learning community; and incorporating student life and leadership into activities. In addition, the Honors Seminar Series and Honors Portfolio will be introduced.
