CTL Events


Events in the Center for Teaching and Learning stimulate campus-wide conversation about teaching, learning, and assessment. Faculty members share ideas and best practices in a collegial environment. They explore research on pedagogical issues and innovations in higher education. CTL events include face-to-face workshops, "Cookies and Conversations," "Lunch and Learn," and program meetings.

Faculty interested in facilitating a CTL session should submit a CTL Events Form.

Suggestions for CTL sessions should be submitted through the CTL Feedback Form.

All sessions are on Fridays in the CTL Suite on the second floor of the Library from 12 - 1 p.m. except where noted

  • 4-20-18 "Willkommen in Jefferson College" - Lisa Hollander
    Study Abroad has come to Jefferson College! Study abroad has consistently been a major positive attribute in experiential learning for students. Jefferson College is on the Study Abroad path and in September, 12 German students are arriving at the College for 10 days. Our students will reciprocate in May. Come to this CTL session to find out about the German Exchange, the Nicaragua trip in March 2019 and how every discipline in A&S can plan a study abroad trip through the 191 course offering.  Lisa Hollander, Chair of the Global Education Subcommittee will lead the discussion.

  • 4-27-18 Cell Phone Project in the classroom - Brandon Whittington
    The session will discuss the challenges and opportunities cell phones provide in the classroom and review data from an ongoing project in General Psychology courses where students can choose to abstain from all electronic device use during class as part of an extra credit assignment.

  • 5-4-18 Last Lecture with Robin Dunze and Linda Hoppe
    Join Robin Duntze and Linda Hoppe as they share the wisdom they've gathered from teaching at Jefferson College for over 40 years combined. Robin will offer insights on how she was able to wrangle misbehaving critters, getting them to sit still and stop howling--and she was great with the animals, too! Linda will explain the angles she uses to keep problems from multiplying, including how to divide and conquer challenges in the classroom from both student and faculty perspectives. The Veterinary Technology and Mathematics programs--as well as the entire Jefferson College community--would like to thank them for their years of dedication.



Sessions are held on Wednesdays from 4 - 5 p.m. unless otherwise noted. Locations are noted as below.

New faculty are assigned a mentor to assist and support them as they join the community of Jefferson College educators. The primary goals are improving teaching and learning and improving the quality of professional relationships. These mentors provide monthly workshops on best practices used in teaching and assessment of expected learning outcomes, they offer periodic evaluation of classroom performance, and they provide teaching demonstration opportunities.


Faculty are provided opportunities to increase their teaching effectiveness in traditional and online environments through courses offered several times per year. Applied pedagogy and hands-on activities ensure Jefferson College instructors have a strong foundation in the most effective teaching practices. In addition, stipends are awarded for successful completion of each course. Faculty interested in taking one of these courses should complete the Request for Enrollment in a Professional Development Course.

  • JC101: Foundation for Adjunct Instruction
    JC101 is a fully online orientation session that covers College policies, procedures and available resources. Adjuncts converse with their colleagues as they work through the course material at their own pace over three weeks. They receive extensive support from the Division of Online Learning throughout the course as they develop skills be as successful as possible from their first semester at the College.

  • JC102: Survey of Adjunct Instruction
    JC102 is a fully online professional development session that allows faculty to overview several topics pertinent to education, and dig deeper into one of them. The course project supports adjuncts as they work to incorporate pedagogically sound methods and materials into their courses.

  • Faculty Certification Course for Online and Hybrid Teaching
    Online courses require teaching techniques that can differ greatly from traditional classroom instruction. Prior to teaching online or hybrid courses, faculty must complete this course. The program equips full-time and adjunct faculty with the basic skills necessary to create a successful online learning environment for students.
