Summer Institute 2016 – “Highlighting Faculty”
Several faculty members signed up to participate in a day of sharing at the 2016 CETL Summer Institute – “Highlighting Faculty”. Faculty presenters from various disciplines shared an engaging, learner-centered strategy with colleagues. This event allowed faculty to meet face to face, mingle and exchange ideas. A special thank you is extended to presenters.
Topics ranged from collaborative apps and learning environments, engaging students the first day of class, to setting quality coursework standards and providing feedback via the use of Blackboard grading rubrics.
From gathering at the popcorn bar to enjoy a snack or the lively discussions on various student achievement strategies, there appeared to be a sense of social connectedness. The day concluded with faculty desiring to try one of the strategies presented. Faculty also affirmed the community of practice aspect of this event, expressing interest in attending and presenting at next year’s event!
