Online Instruction

Effective online instruction can be challenging and yet, if done correctly, can provide even higher rates of student success. 

In trying times, it is more important than ever to humanize the learning experience for our students. But how do we humanize an online course?

Curriculum Development and Assessment

Design, development, and assessment of curriculum that aligns with our SPCC strategic goals and core values are quintessential to our success.

Curriculum Internationalization is the process of adding global, intercultural, or international elements into the content of the curriculum of a course. This opportunity will provide students with an international perspective in a variety of disciplines, will allow students to develop an understanding of various local and global issues that face our community, and allow our students to develop their cultural sensitivity by learning about new cultures.
