What We Do

Professional Development

Our goal in the faculty hub is to provide various professional development opportunities that prepare all faculty to lead their students. We know that faculty are the front lines to keeping students engaged and committed to becoming lifelong learners. We work to provide all faculty the supports they need through workshops, podcasts, informational marketing and much more.

Academic Technology

The Academic Technology Hub (“Tech Hub”) is a faculty resource center where faculty members can connect with peers and colleagues to discuss current and innovative methodologies for incorporating technology into the classroom.  Our goal is to transform the college experience by using innovative technologies to connect, enrich and empower learners.

Chemeketa Online

Chemeketa Online hosts nearly 1200 online courses a year and provides support and guidance to faculty and students participating in an online learning experience.  We support Chemeketa’s Learning Management System, eLearn (running Blackboard 9.1) and online teaching at Chemeketa.  We strive to increase access to students by offering a fully accredited and transferable Associate’s degree as well as many other certificates.
