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.

November 16, 2018 - 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Nicole Bach will describe the proficiency-based assessments she designed for her Spanish classes, discuss the type of information they provide her and her students and identify other learning outcomes that she would like to begin assessing in this manner. Faculty will be invited to pick learning outcomes from their own disciplines that might benefit from proficiency-based assessments and to brainstorm with colleagues.
All CTL Events at Arnold Campus are held in the Conference Room, room 322.
None planned at this time. Let us know what you'd like to see!
Many of the listings contain links to slideshows, recordings, and handouts presented during the session.
NEW FACULTY MENTORING
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.
