Visit the FIC!

The Faculty Innovation Center is part of the Division of Online Studies and is located in Building 200, on the second floor. The mission of Online Studies is to promote the development of knowledgeable and innovative faculty and to ensure a high quality online educational experience for students.

We assist faculty with developing and procuring digital learning materials, online/hybrid course design/redesign and development and Falcon Online training. Working in partnership with the Instructional Resources media production group, we can assist with video and interactive media content production and development. The Center has some of the latest equipment and applications available including tablets, scanners, etc.

The Division of Online Studies is excited to announce the return of FIC on the Go, where the Faculty Innovation Center travels to Daytona State's branch campuses in order to better serve ALL our faculty. This is your opportunity for one-on-one assistance with one of our instructional designers or members of the Instructional Resources media team. Check out the FIC on the Go Spring 2023 schedule to see when we'll be visiting your home campus. We look forward to seeing you there!
