Faculty Resource Room: BTC 1052

The Faculty Resource Room has been a vital area for faculty since 2002. Along with the opportunity to experiment with technology similar to what is available in the classrooms and computer labs, faculty can get assistance in pedagogy, teaching techniques, and technology from mentors. The Center for Effective Teaching also offers workshops in the Faculty Resource Room as a way for faculty to personally experience some of the emerging technology available to them and their students. The Faculty Resource Room, which is located in BTC 1052, is also a place where faculty can complete other tasks that include photocopying, grading, reading, or conducting brief meetings in between classes.

Faculty Mentors

Faculty mentors are “go-to” people who have been cross-trained on the equipment that any faculty member will encounter in your classroom. Mentors can help with the instructor consoles, basic computer tasks, computer software, and pedagogical areas such as learning styles, syllabi, and with quick questions about the campus in general.

Mentors also have areas in which they specialize. Please email mentors@hvcc.edu to get the best answer to your question.

While your department chairperson is always your first point of contact for any question, faculty mentors are also available to help with questions by working with you one-on-one or in a workshop setting.
