Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning

CONFERENCES

Each year CETL collaborates with various units and the Faculty Association to coordinate its programming through conferences around a theme related to teaching and learning within the framework of our institutional goals and objectives. 

FALL CONVOCATION:

Fall Convocation, held at the beginning of the Fall Semester serves to welcome everyone back from the summer to a new academic year.

JANUARY WORKSHOPS:

January Workshops, held at the beginning of each Spring Semester, are seen as a way to get faculty and staff at the university back together and to sustain the sense of community and their commitment to teaching and learning.

OTHER CONFERENCES:

Additionally CETL plans and organizes teaching and learning conferences during our October Teaching and Learning Colloquium and the April Teaching and Learning Forum each year.

THEME FOR THE 2013-2014 ACADEMIC YEAR

USING A CRITICAL LENS TO ENGAGE WITH TECHNOLOGY IN TEACHING AND LEARNING

technology

The theme will be developed through a series of workshops, roundtables, panels, etc. held at various times throughout the year.

  • Fall Convocation, August 21-23, 2013.
  • Fall Teaching and Learning Colloquium, Thursday, October 10, 2013 (Faculty duty day, no classes)
  • January Workshops, January 9-10, 2014.
  • Spring Teaching and Learning Forum, April 4, 2014 (Faculty duty day, no classes)

Our goal is to provide opportunities for reflective and transformative conversations, roundtables, creative productions, speaker events, panel presentations and workshops that ignite thoughtful inquiry into a realm where teaching and learning drive technology, technology does not lead teaching and learning.

In doing so, we hope to help faculty, staff, students and administrators:

  • Gain knowledge and awareness of how technology is used at the university by faculty, staff and students,
  • Create a framework and develop aspects of an on-going peer support and mentoring system for the use of technology, and,
  • Begin a conversation about a range of quality indicators around the uses of technology

Planning Team led by Lalita Subrahmanyan, CETL Director: Debra Carlson, Keith Ewing, Wade Nelson, and Michael Penrod.
