Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence Seeks Input on Faculty Needs
The Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence (CTLE) develops and supports University faculty through collaboration. It promotes effective, inclusive, innovative teaching through a range of professional development, coaching and consulting services that are grounded in evidence-based practices.
To fulfill its mission and continually evolve to serve faculty, the CTLE conducts a periodic needs assessment in which the center surveys faculty to understand how they would like to engage and what events or services may be most helpful to them in adopting evidence-based teaching and learning techniques.
Next week, faculty will receive an email with a link to the CTLE’s 2022 Faculty Needs Assessment. The survey, which takes approximately 10 minutes to complete, is an opportunity for faculty to reflect on their experiences over the past three years and help the CTLE to identify services that meet ongoing and emerging faculty needs.
“Even for veteran faculty, the last few years have been challenging. In addition to pandemic restrictions, faculty are now teaching students whose formative experiences in high school may have been online. The environment that affects teaching and learning is rapidly changing, and CTLE is constantly evolving to meet faculty needs,” said CTLE Director Martha Diede.
The needs survey will shape the center’s offerings for the next three years, though the CTLE offers flexible offerings that can meet the needs of individuals, communities of practice, departments and schools and colleges.
