Professional Learning Community


CSU faculty and staff are supported through involvement in a Professional Learning Community focused on various aspects of effective course redesign. This PLC meets biweekly using Zoom as a platform for synchronous online presentations and discussions. If you are new to Zoom, you visit their Getting Started page for simple instructions related to the desktop or mobile device you use to attend. The meeting topics are listed below and anyone may attend live by clicking on the “Join” links below. Slides and recordings are posted shortly after each session.

Join the CRT-PLC Listserv

A general Course Redesign with Technology PLC  (CRT-PLC listserv) connects interested CSU faculty and staff and provides a forum for CSU staff to send news and announcements. Official faculty participants in the Proven and Promising Course Redesign programs are automatically subscribed. The CRT-PLC listserv is for the sole use of Course Redesign with Technology staff; no vendors are permitted to subscribe and no email addresses are shared with outside groups. Any CSU faculty and staff can sign up for the PLC email list at
