The Partnership for the Development of Faculty in Service Learning and Community Engagement (PDF) is a joint program between the University of La Verne's Office of Civic and Community Engagement and Claremont Graduate University's (CGU) Preparing Future Faculty (PFF) program. The program seeks to create opportunities for doctoral students to develop pedagogical knowledge and skills in creating and leading service learning and community engagement courses with undergraduate students.
The PFF consultation system is available free to all CGU students, alumni, faculty, and staff whether or not you are enrolled in the PFF Certificate program.
You can make 50-minute appointments to meet with a PFF Fellow in-person or via Zoom. Brainstorming and exploring teaching with another educator helps develop a more intentional approach to teaching. And, you will save time by not re-inventing the many wheels that move teaching and learning forward!
You can also use our email review service to get feedback on teaching related documents such as teaching philosophy statement drafts, lesson plans, student learning outcome and assessment alignment documents, syllabi drafts, rubrics.
Appointments must be made at least 24 hours in advance. The appointment system will not allow you to schedule appointments on the day itself. However, if the appointment slot is open, you can do an in-person walk-in appointment at the PFF office.
