Goal and Outcomes
The goal of the CETL initiative is to welcome new probationary faculty members and orient them to the mission, learning commitments, and professional responsibilities at SCSU. The intent is to help them find a supportive environment of collegiality and camaraderie to be successful educators.
CETL’s immediate objectives for the first year: (intended to focus on orientation and success with their primary assignment, teaching)
1. New faculty will be introduced to the St. Cloud State University and broader St. Cloud community in order to better understand and feel a part of the context in which they will be teaching. They can use this information to tailor their teaching to the needs of the students, university, and community at large:
2. Using the knowledge of the St. Cloud State University community and the students it serves, new faculty will access a variety of teaching strategies that can be tested and implemented in the classroom to enhance teacher effectiveness and increase student engagement and learning
3. New faculty will form relationships with peers and colleagues across campus in order to be better supported personally and professionally and to better understand and utilize support structures for students
4. New faculty will gain an understanding of the professional development and related processes at St. Cloud State University in order to better understand their teaching responsibilities and to effectively establish and work towards their professional goals:
