CETL Professional Development Events for Spring 2013

CETL logoThere is something happening at the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) this spring that is just for you. You will find many seminars and workshops that will advance your professional development and hone your teaching expertise.

The last event noted is something new for NOVA and CETL. We now have a series of speakers from outside NOVA who will complement the expertise that is here. The first one, arranged by Loudoun Campus Provost Julie Leidig, brings Dr. Ken Bain, author of “What the Best College Teachers Do” to NOVA. Watch for the email with the registration link coming soon.

Up & Coming Series, Seminars and Workshops:

CETL and Pathways to the Baccalaureate Sponsor a Half-day Workshop: Best Practices for Identifying, Serving and Engaging Underprepared Students. This workshop will discuss strategies to help students who are not fully prepared for the demands of your classrooms. It will be followed by a webinar led by Debra Runshe from Indiana University, titled “Identifying & Engaging Unprepared Students: Practical Strategies & Techniques for Today’s College Classroom.” The workshop will take place February 13 from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Location to be determined.
