Faculty Boot Camp

Faculty Boot Camps hosted and facilitated by the Center for Teaching & Learning Excellence is for faculty members ready to learn best teaching and learning practices. CTLE consultants will assist with everything from designing online class activities, assignments and rubrics, and building resources in the university's learning management system, Canvas. Each day we present a variety of teaching approaches and engage attendees in discussion and activities, with opportunities to engage with faculty from a variety of disciplines. 

After two years adjusting our teaching adjusting to Zoom, Canvas, and an assortment of technologies during COVID,  CTLE is happy to return to the fundamentals of pedagogy, beginning with the question: What makes good teaching.  The 2022 summer bootcamp is for all faculty and aimed for those without a formal background in pedagogy and teaching. Faculty who attend and participate in all sessions will receive a Certificate of Attendance.
