Regis Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning: What’s New?
Thank a Teacher
93% of faculty at Regis report that getting a thank you note from their students is motivating and inspiring. This year CETL will invite students to submit a short note or comment thanking or expressing appreciation for a teacher, coach, advisor, mentor, or tutor. CETL will deliver the thank you notes to the recipients.
Open Classroom Week
Monday, Sept 23-Thursday, Sept 26
Similar to some aspects of the Celebration of Student Learning, this week will provide opportunities for faculty to visit one another’s classes—online and face-to-face. During this week, a number of Regis faculty will open their classrooms to their colleagues, creating opportunities for conversations about teaching and learning across disciplines. This week is a great opportunity to explore new pedagogies, check out technologies and
materials, and reflect on our own practices in the classroom.*
Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Academy:
CSRE and CETL piloted this program last year
and will offer it again this year. Participants learn about the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning,
design a project, collect data, and draft an article for presentation or publication.
