Each year the Committee for Excellence in Learning and Teaching hosts a May workshop for faculty. The theme for the presentation rotates and is selected based on faculty input. The 2018 workshop will be held on May 23 from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm. The topic selected for the workshop is, Inquiry as a Tool for Modern Teaching and Learning. To learn more about the May workshop contact Lisa Lucas.
Inquiry, curiosity, and wondering are some of the most human capacities that exist. Privileging student voice in the process of their learning is critical. Let’s discover how we can empower our students through inquiry to grow and transform their lives. Workshop facilitator Diana Laufenberg will highlight examples, resources, and tips for classroom implementation.
CELT’s 2017 workshop explored service-learning as a high-impact educational practice at the Committee for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT) summer workshop. Co-sponsored by the Service-Learning Faculty Workgroup, Dr. Char Gray, Executive Director of PA Campus Compact, provided principles for designing a service-learning course, tips for practical application, and methods for creating course learning assessments. Participants also heard from a panel of WCU faculty who are currently teaching service-learning courses, and enjoyed lunch with representatives from local community organizations.
