    Summer Learning Series 2014 – Learn, Share, Explore

     
    The CELT Learning Series is designed to offer a variety of workshops using the Learn, Share and Explore tracks.  Besides these scheduled workshops the members of CELT are available by appointment to help you with your individual needs. 


    The CELT Learning Series is composed of workshops that are defined by three tracks: Learn, Share and Explore.

    Learn

    Workshops on the Learn track are hands on workshops designed for participants to learn about subjects that currently have support structures in place by the university. These offerings will include informative workshops in the areas of technology, grants, instructional design, and student learning.

    Share

    Offerings in the share track will be presented by faculty or staff members wishing to share a teaching, advising, or organizational practice that they have found to be effective in their own work. If you are interested in delivering a workshop in the Share track then let us know about it.

    Explore

    The Explore track will be composed of workshops and discussion groups around subjects for which the university does not have complete support structures in place. The explore track is intended to be a forward looking track that allows an avenue for creative dialog about current trends in the world at large that will affect higher education teaching and learning.
