Semester Start

Attendance Roster

The purpose of this resource is to offer a step-by-step guide to using the Attendance Roster feature available in "Faculty Center" in the MyLoneStar portal. Faculty may manage their students' attendance throughout the semester in multiple ways, and this document is intended to help explain how to access and report student attendance in MyLoneStar directly. Attendance rosters are automatically generated on the first day of class. For additional support, please contact the iStar Training Team at 832-813-6600.

Resource Development Checklists

There are a variety of ways faculty can contribute to the FRC's collection of professional development resources, whether it is sharing an idea for a workshop, explaining a teaching tip, presenting an assignment that worked particularly well, or recording a 5-minute video that explains an idea you have tried (or want to try). The FRC has created checklists to help faculty organize the information they would like to share into various formats: 

All of us have something to contribute; NO topic too small or large! All ideas are welcome. You might want to share your excitement for a discussion topic your students responded well to, or a new technique you read about that you want to try. Here is a list of topics that have been requested by LSC-M faculty.
