DISCOVERe Mobile Technology Program
The overall goal for faculty is to provide a transformed learning experience for students in a face-to-face classroom setting that leverages mobile technology to include opportunities for innovation and engagement. Faculty will explore and select appropriate technology that aligns with their pedagogy to enhance learning activities that meet student learning outcomes.
Selected faculty will receive a mobile device and will participate in professional development training February 2022 through May 2022. Funding is limited, and preference will be given to tenured, tenure-track, lecturers and faculty who teach high-demand courses.
If accepted, faculty will participate in a professional development experience and faculty learning community (FLC) culminating in the implementation of mobile-learning activities in a Fall 2022 semester course. In addition, a two-day professional development training and reflection will occur at the beginning of the Fall 2022 semester.
A taxable stipend, up to $1,500, will be provided for the successful completion of the DISCOVERe Program as well as a mobile device for individuals who do not already have one.
Faculty participating in DISCOVERe will engage and inspire students and each other. You will learn best practices for teaching with tablets and other techniques to increase collaboration and student engagement. Please consider becoming a part of the DISCOVERe Program.

Faculty Training & Support

The Center for Faculty Excellence is the primary facilitator of faculty support and training for Fresno State’s DISCOVERe Program. Our goal is to help faculty realize their vision for their redesigned course using mobile devices. The Center works closely with the DISCOVERe Hub, the Kennel Bookstore, and the Technology Services Help Center to provide faculty with training and on-going support.
Visit the DISCOVERe Hub website where you will find suggested apps, installation instructions, as well as a request form to have a 'Guide on the Go' come to your class and provide tech support.
Faculty support is located in the Center for Faculty Excellence (CFE) on the second floor of the Henry Madden Library. The Resource Center is available on a drop-in basis or you can schedule an appointment with an Instructional Designer.
