Committee for Excellence in Learning and Teaching

Funding

The mission of the Committee for Excellence in Learning and Teaching includes fostering collaboration among faculty and students to build a scholarly community around issues of learning and teaching. CELT seeks to promote a variety of pedagogical strategies that actively engage students and that will result in improved student learning as part of the new strategic plan, Building on Excellence. CELT will award up to five development grants this cycle for up to $2,000 for activities to be to be completed between July 1, 2018 and May 12, 2019.

2018-19 applications are due Feb 15, 2018

Projects may include:

  • Pedagogical activities – projects that result in the use of effective pedagogical strategies to actively engage the student and improve learning.
  • Curriculum activities – projects that result in the development of curricular innovations that improve student learning. Proposed projects must go beyond acquisition of content knowledge by a faculty member for a course.
  • Assessment activities – projects that result in the implementation of assessment practices that improve student learning.
  • Diversity activities – Projects that create a “J” course designation, or integrate the issues of race, disability, gender, class, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and international concerns into new or existing curricula.
