Summer Professional Development Opportunities

Back by popular demand, we are offering a number of professional development opportunities this summer. Many attendees in last summer’s programs noted that the summer programs allowed them an opportunity to participate during a time when their schedules were less full and the pace on campus was a bit slower. Below is a sampling of what we have in store for the summer.

The ever popular Research-Based Flipped Classroom: Team-Based Learning workshop, lead by Holly Bender, CELT Associate Director, will be offered as a 3-part series on June 27-29 from 1:10 – 4:00 p.m.

New this summer is the Best Practices in Online Course Design lead by Darrin Jones, CELT Program Coordinator and Quality Matters leader. This 3-day workshop meets on consecutive days and will be offered three separate times this summer, May 17-19, June 20-22, and July 25-27. The workshop will explore best practices in online course design through the use of the Quality Matters (QM) rubric.

Also new this summer is the Inclusive Classroom workshop for faculty and staff (with a teaching role) will be offered May 11, June 13, July 12, and August 9. This workshop includes pre-workshop online learning modules and an interactive face-to-face 3-hour workshop focused on creating an inclusive classroom environment.

Check out our CELT Events and Registration site for the full list.

We hope you will be able to join us for these sessions as you take some extra time to reflect on your teaching goals and aspirations this summer.
