CELT coordinates all Luther College faculty development programming, including new faculty orientation, reflective faculty learning communities, inclusive pedagogy workshops, with an eye of cultivating a culture of continued educational excellence.
CELT offers a variety of academic year and summer workshops to support faculty in teaching and learning.
Course Redesign Institute
Each summer CELT offers an in-person and a virtual Course Redesign Institute. The institute gives faculty the tools and support they need to redesign a course of their choosing.
At the Institute’s end, each participant will have a draft syllabus, policy language, assignments and activities that align with their course learning outcomes. CELT staff and faculty colleagues offer support and feedback along the way.
Faculty Learning Communities and Teaching Partnerships
CELT offers two individualized programs to support faculty making curricular innovations. Faculty Learning Communities are year-long theme based communities of practice. Teaching Partnerships use a peer-to-peer model of faculty curricular support.
Inclusive Teaching Resources
We are committed to creating inclusive classrooms that support the learning of all of our students. These resources support faculty in that work.
Peer classroom observations are one of the most valuable tools we have as teachers. Our Teaching Fellows provide compassionate, low-stakes, formative support for their colleagues’ teaching outside of the context of formal review processes.
