CTE Teaching CertificateCTE Undergraduate and Graduate Teaching Certificate Program 2014-15 [Program Flyer]
The CTE Undergraduate and Graduate Teaching Certificate Program will allow 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 and 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 class will involve peer review and class observations, and development of multiple feedback and other tools tailored to each participant’s class. Details of the coverage of these topics will be tailored towards the interests of the participating faculty. At the end, 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 this semester or in the spring 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.
If you are interested in participating in the program, please submit an application HERE by 9/3/2014.
