The Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology (CTLT) is partnering with faculty and staff from across campus to offer new, exciting opportunities for professional development this summer. In addition to CTLT’s successful Faculty Fellows program, invited presenters will offer workshops on topics ranging from developing a teaching portfolio to balancing life as both a professor and a mom. These new workshops, more than 15 in all, are part of the nearly 40 professional opportunities being offered as part of the annual Summer Institute.
Variety of workshops
In addition to half- and full-day workshops, several faculty members design and redesign their courses in specific learning cohorts, focused on themes such as civic engagement, global learning, and diversity. A cohort called Design Your Course, which begins May 17, helps early career faculty make their teaching assignments more their own.
CTLT will also offer a full slate of ReggieNet-related workshops this summer, with special topics focusing on the Gradebook tool, communicating with students, and building online lessons and assessments.
Also new this summer: The first CTLT Summer Reading Challenge. This initiative, in partnership with Milner Library, encourages faculty to challenge themselves by reading three books related to teaching and student learning, books they might not normally be tempted to try. Participants will be encouraged to share their insights online.
Most Summer Institute events require registration. Stipends are available for most workshops, based on participant’s eligibility. Find out more and browse the complete list of workshops and events at CTLT.IllinoisState.edu/Summer.
