CELT’s mission is to serve as leaders to the college community by providing expertise, support, and resources to enhance learning, teaching, and scholarship. CELT will foster an institutional culture where learning is our central focus.
In support of this mission, CELT will participate in campus wide conversations on institutional initiatives and provide on and off campus professional development opportunities related to effective pedagogical approaches as well as discipline specific teaching strategies. Professional development activities will include workshops, consultation, webinars or other on-line tutorials, as well as more in depth learning experiences such as on-line courses and summer institutes targeting issues such as course re-design. CELT will provide mentoring and extensive professional development opportunities that specifically target new faculty. CELT will also provide guidance and expertise to faculty and administrators on issues related to hiring processes for new faculty, on-going mentoring, and providing effective feedback through observations. In addition, CELT will provide opportunities for collegial and intellectually stimulating conversations among faculty from various disciplines, support and celebrate faculty scholarship activities, and engage in educational research activities.
