CETL Teaching and Learning Communities
Have you ever wanted to share ideas or get feedback from your colleagues? Teaching and Learning Communities are communities of practice that allow faculty to get together with other faculty who share an interest related to teaching. Communities will generally meet about once a month and are formed around whatever interest you may have. Check out the sign-up sheet for some suggested communities. When 5 or more faculty have signed up for a certain community, CETL will help set up the first meeting.
Book Club - Spring 2023
There are two possible books for the spring semester CETL Book Club. The choices are listed below. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org by Nov. 22 to sign up to participate. Be sure to let us know which book you prefer. Meeting times will be determined based on the availability of the faculty who sign up.
