What is Pacific Crest?
Pacific Crest provides faculty development in the areas of learning, teaching, mentoring, instructional design and assessment. Their work in these areas has resulted in the development and articulation of an educational philosophy called Process EducationTM.
Process EducationTM is a performance-based philosophy of education which integrates many different educational theories, processes, and tools in emphasizing the continuous development of learning skills through the use of assessment principles in order to produce learner self-development.
What Programs are available?
Pacific Crest offers innovative workshops and institutes to improve educational outcomes. The workshops and institutes focus on key educational processes such as teaching, instructional design, student success, technology, assessment, and institutional effectiveness.
