As part of our mission to the campus academic community, to assess its needs, and to provide professional development that ultimately results in better teaching and learning, the Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (CETL) announced the CETL Faculty Fellows, starting fall 2012. The Faculty Fellows work collaboratively to support faculty across their colleges and the institution, in collaboration with the CETL Associate Director for Faculty Development.
Faculty fellows are selected through an application process and based on their demonstrated successful experience with teaching and learning strategies, in either face-to face classroom, online or hybrid environments. Fellows also have a strong interest in the advancement of the scholarship of teaching and learning and supporting such traditions at UNC.
Fellows work collegially within their respective colleges and beyond, and serve to accomplish the following:
1. Effectively expand institutional faculty development capacity by implementing a faculty-teaching-faculty model;
2. Customize specific faculty development initiatives within each college based on each college’s priorities and disciplinary and instructional contexts;
3. Help meet faculty teaching and learning needs and support the scholarship of teaching and more broadly, engaged scholarship, involving external communities;
4. Share and disseminate best practices among the T&L Fellows, thus creating opportunities for faculty in different colleges to be exposed to discipline-specific teaching and learning strategies and potentially those that are also the focus of another college.
If you have questions or ideas for possible forums or topics please contact either your college fellow or me directly. All the best for a wonderful semester and great year!
