CTE Teaching Certificate

CTE Teaching Certificate Program 2015-16 [Program Flyer]

The CTE Teaching Certificate Program allows LMU instructors to carefully develop or redesign one of their classes, from backward course design to assignment development. We will be working as a learning community providing feedback on each other’s designs, teaching, and learning activities – everybody will be working on his/her own class and rely on the group and facilitators for feedback. All participants will be sharing their material and experiences and complete readings and assignments. The program involves peer review and class observations, as well as detailed feedback and suggestions for teaching and learning strategies. Activities will be tailored to the interests of the participating faculty. Participants will receive a certificate documenting their participation in the program.

The program has a limited number of slots – all faculty welcome. Preference will be given to those attending the whole program. Graduate students planning to teach or already teaching college-level classes will be considered. Participants should be teaching a class in the fall semester (or possibly in the spring semester), so that they can benefit from class observations and peer review; if you are not teaching either semester, please coordinate with the CTE Director before applying. Additional sessions will be determined at mutually agreeable times.

If you are interested in participating in the program, please submit an application HERE latest by 9/2/2015. Please get in touch if you have any questions: teachers@lmu.edu.
