"The CETL Teaching/ Learning Grant helped me bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical clinical skills for my students in Communication Sciences and Disorders. The Hearing Assistive Technology Lab provided a much needed service to St. Cloud and the greater community. Thank you CETL!

TEACHING & LEARNING GRANT RECIPIENTS
Augmenting Meteorological Learning Using Virtual Reality
Dr. Alan Srock
This project will provide meteorology students with immersive, 3D views of atmospheric phenomena. These novel methods of meteorological visualization will help students reach synthesis and evaluation of the atmosphere more easily and efficiently, which in turn will help their scaffolding as they progress through the meteorology program and out into the world beyond.
Peer Mentor Led Student Success Modules
Dr. Christine Metzo
Through this project, new first year students will benefit from the modules and activities created for them to address topics related to their transition to college. Peer mentors will learn how to collaborate with peers in a group work setting, learn how to develop helpful ideas that support their mentees’ success into real, usable modules that can produce results.
Film Production Workshop
The Film Production Workshop will allow students to test their interests in roles such as cinematographer or producer, and helps them build a small resume listing some specific production positions beyond the usual small film program titles of writer/director. Both the of the finished films will be shown at the St. Cloud Film Festival as part of the SCSU student showcase.
Building Mentorship in Career Exploration: A Club Mentoring Project
Dr. Shu-Ching Wang and Dr. Bill Lepkowski
In this project, graduate students will mentor undergraduate students from within the department to work with each other in mentor-mentee relationships to gain knowledge about careers in the field. Mentorship is effective in college student's personal and professional development, career exploration, and academic success.
Development of a Hands-On Approach to Understanding Protein Folding
Dr. Cassidy Dobson
The objective of this project is to assess if a kinesthetic approach to a complex topic in Biochemistry leads to an increase in understanding the underlying concepts of the thermodynamic principles that govern protein folding. The outcomes will be measured by assessment of student understanding and observing the generated protein model made by each student.
