CTLT Workshops & Learning Communities

Throughout the academic year and summer, the CTLT offers scheduled workshops and workshops by request designed to support faculty in creating rich learn-by-doing environments for their students. Workshop topics encompass Academic Technology, PolyLearn and Instructional Practices. Please check our workshop schedules frequently. If you would like a workshop or information on a topic not listed, please contact the CTLT.

The CTLT also facilitates Faculty Learning Communities (FLC) throughout the year. FLCs enable a diverse cohort of faculty from across the university to dive deeply into an issue, challenge or set of topics related to their professional careers. By supplying faculty with time, space and resources, FLCs encourage instructors to reflect on their practices, to learn new ideas and strategies from each other, and to share their insights with the broader university community.

All CTLT workshops and Faculty Learning Communities are facilitated by faculty and staff, whose practices and beliefs about teaching and learning are deeply informed by experience and evidence-based research in education, the learning sciences, and socio-cultural and diversity studies.
