Online Digital Resources

The following resources are digital resources available to the Montclair State University teaching community. To request access to the videos, materials, discussions, activities and more available, please contact Julie Dalley at to request access.

Magna Commons Site Subscription

(Montclair State Faculty Members Only)

This site subscription allows access to over 50+ webinars ranging in topics from effective lectures, guiding active and engaged discussions with students, using your teaching persona to engage students, effective online course design, considering issues of implicit bias and gender identity in the classroom and much more. These webinars are appropriate for all teaching faculty members, as well as administrators, deans and chairpersons, and academic advisors. To view the range of videos and materials available, you can visit the Magna site.

Access to all the webinars and materials connected to each video enables departments and faculty groups to organize development sessions around topics relevant to their curricular and program goals. The Office for Faculty Advancement is happy to help organize and facilitate these meetings and discussions! Please email to schedule.

  • Departments may want to organize development meetings around specific topics available in the Commons; if you would like us to help facilitate these sessions, please contact our office.
  • Faculty members may want to lead or facilitate sessions based on their own pedagogical needs. If you see a topic you’d like to organize a workshop or discussion around, please contact us!
  • We have organized several “Lunch & Learn” discussion sessions which attendees view and discuss specific videos. We respond to the topics by discussing applications and issues that the concepts or practices foster in our own practice!

Feedback: Email to let us know which videos you like the most or even which ones did not feel useful or relevant. We want to continue to develop our programs, and your feedback is important!
