The Future of CELT: A Campus Wide Conversation 2/24
Monday, February 24, 2014 from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM (EST)
This is our first CELT Monday of the semester. Typically you would have 2 programs to choose from on a CELT Monday, but we are planning a special meeting for our first CELT Monday. We'd like to invite all members of our campus community to a conversation about the future of CELT (Center for the Enrichment of Learning and Teaching). We have some exciting ideas about how to expand our faculty services, offering full and part time faculty more comprehensive learning and teaching support. While we can't wait to share some of our ideas with you, we are particularly interested in your input. How can CELT best support faculty? What programs or services would you like to see offered via CELT? How can we truly become a "Faculty Center"? While we want to continue offering workshops (and certainly welcome input on topics), there is so much more we could be doing. Let's explore options together. We hope you will come join us for this stimulating conversation- your input is incredibly valuable to us!
When & Where
"Come Grow with Us"
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.
