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, held at the beginning of the Fall Semester serves to welcome everyone back from the summer to a new academic year.
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.
The theme will be developed through a series of workshops, roundtables, panels, etc. held at various times throughout the year.
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
