Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Scholars ProgramThe SoTL Scholars Program involves faculty framing and systematically investigating questions related to student learning to improve their classroom and advance practice beyond it through peer-reviewed presentations and publications. SoTL Scholars meets monthly throughout the 2021-22 academic year.

Teaching and Learning AcademyCELT Teaching and Learning Academy (TLA) participants will attend monthly sessions that address course design, evidence-based teaching strategies, inclusive classroom practices, peer-review of teaching, and documentation of teaching effectiveness. Local experts on college teaching and learning will lead sessions during the academy. Instructors from all disciplines are encouraged to apply for this cohort-based teaching and learning community. TLA meets monthly throughout the 2021-22 academic year.

Teaching Partners ProgramThe CELT Teaching Partners Program (TPP), a cohort-based teaching and learning community, supplements departmental mentoring by pairing a new instructor with a senior instructor from a different discipline who is a successful and experienced teacher. Junior partners should be in their second or third year at Iowa State University. Partners discuss teaching and learning topics, complete classroom observations, and focus on documenting teaching effectiveness for continuous improvement efforts in their teaching portfolios. The TPP meets monthly throughout the 2021-22 academic year.
