Advisory Board

CET’s Advisory Board is comprised of faculty from various disciplines with content expertise in the area of instruction, course design, and curriculum development, as well as inclusive educational practices. The Board serves in an advisory capacity, providing consultation and guidance on CET’s planning, implementation, content development, service provision, and outreach. The Advisory Board is not expected to develop content or give final approval on models or direction. Its role is to provide vision and feedback that is aligned with the current educational literature and practice in various academic fields to ensure CET provides teaching development resources and awards that are relevant to faculty in all disciplines at USC.
