Do you have a pedagogy-related project that you are eager to implement during the 2016-2017 academic year? 

The Committee for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT) can fund pedagogy-related activities that actively engage students in learning, and that will result in improved student learning.  These funds can be used to support faculty development, curriculum integration, and/or the strategic plan, Building on Excellence.  We invite you to apply for CELT Professional Development Funding for up to $2,000 for activities to be carried out in the 2016-2017 academic year. The activities MUST be completed between July 1, 2016 – May 12, 2017.  They can NOT be completed prior to these dates. 

Access the Call for Proposals here.

All tenured, tenure-track, and regular part-time (RPT) faculty, excluding current members of CELT, are eligible for awards on a competitive basis.  Proposals are due February 22, 2016 at noon.  Proposals should be submitted as a single PDF to Evelyn Doran, EDoran@wcupa.edu.

Donna Sanderson, one of this year’s recipients of CELT funds, will be hosting a brown bag workshop entitled, “How to Write a Strong Proposal” on December 2, 2015 from 12:00-12:45 in Wayne 303.

CELT Summer Workshop 2015: Lesson Study

In May 2015 several English Faculty members as well as an external speaker spoke on the topic of Lesson Study. Lesson study is a form of professonal development in which a team of professors collaboratively plan, research, and study their lesson instruction as a way to determine how students learn best. Click on the resources below from the workshop.
