2012 Summer Institute Program

Introductions and Survey Results

Gail Evans Keynote Address

Who should come?

Teams of faculty from a campus team should have representation from faculty leadership in faculty development, general education, program review, and GE instructional faculty. Teams can range from 3 to 6 members.

What will you do?

Planned workshops include ePortfolio design strategies for program evaluation, development of programmatic level rubrics, and designing and authoring authentic critical thinking instruments based on your content area.


The Institute will begin on the evening of June 25 and end at 5 p.m. on June 27, 2012. Application to the Institute will open on March 15, 2012.


Attendance of the October GE symposium is not a requirement to apply to the Summer Institute. If the campus sent a team to the October GE Symposium, it may be advantageous to send as many of those team members to the Summer Institute as possible.

Teams should come to the Institute with specific goals for how their work will impact GE program assessment. The Institute will use hands on workshops and Institute faculty mentors to help the teams achieve their goals.


ITL will fund CSU teams' lodging and meals at the Institute; campuses are expected to fund the teams' travel to and from the Institute at Long Beach.

Applying to the Institute

A web-based application link at this page will open on March 15 and close on April 6, 2012. Team coordination is important as a statement of team goals for the Institute and how those goals align with GE assessment plans is a required component of the application.


Contact the ITL Director for more information.

Suggestions for other events or areas of faculty development that you believe ITL should consider supporting can be sent to the ITL Director.
