Your space for learning, meeting, collaborating and growing.

We are delivering our offerings through a variety of learning modalities:

Fully Online: All engagement in the offering is asynchronous on Canvas.

Fully Remote: All engagement in the offering is synchronous with no Canvas work required. These are mostly single session offerings.

Hybrid with Remote Synchronous: The main course is delivered on Canvas, and there are required synchronous sessions held through Zoom or Teams.

Hybrid with On-ground Sessions: The main course is delivered on Canvas, and there are required on-ground sessions held in the Faculty Commons.

Hy-Flex: The offering is delivered on ground, and participants are encourage to come to the Faculty Commons, but there are flexible remote-in capabilities. The Faculty Commons has a couple of camera and microphone set-up options, as well as screens and computer connections. Remote participants can see and hear what is happening on ground. In addition, the remote participants are projected on a large monitor so the on-ground participants can see and hear them. There may or may not be a Canvas component to these workshops.

Faculty Development


The Faculty Commons provides different development opportunities led by Bellevue College faculty and staff. They are offered online, face-to-face, or hybrid. A stipend may be provided.

Mentoring and Advocacy


We organize a variety of mentoring and advocacy programs throughout each quarter. Mentors hold weekly office hours at the Faculty Commons and can be contacted by phone or email.

Community Building & Wellness

mentoring and advocacy

Community building promotes the connection of our faculty at other levels aside from pedagogical activities. We also partner with the Wellness Center to provide physical and mental wellness activities for our faculty.

New Faculty Orientation


Each new faculty is highly encouraged to attend the face-to-face orientation provided at least once a quarter. In this training, participants learn about our college culture and organization, faculty rights and responsibilities, and resources to support faculty and students.

The Faculty Commons is committed to providing equitable, relevant, evidence-based, and transformational faculty development opportunities to all instructors at Bellevue College.
