The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) came to fruition from two converging resources: a master’s thesis case study of teaching and learning centers and the Department of Education Title III Grant.
Title III, Activity I focused on the enhancement of teaching and learning with more effective delivery of interactive and technology-based learning strategies in the curriculum. The purpose was to provide technology for the faculty to use in the classroom while developing faculty competence in instructional technology. The grant supported the activities of faculty development, educational technology, additional staffing and a Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning. In 2010, at the conclusion of the Title III grant, Gannon University remained committed to excellence in teaching and learning by continuing to fund CETL. This support has enabled us to expand our focus to include all aspects of teaching excellence.
Since 2005, CETL has broadened our impact on faculty and staff through professional development opportunities and innovation in teaching and technology. The CETL team is an invaluable resource to the Gannon community and our contributions include, but are not limited to the following essential functions:
The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning plans to continue to provide these valued services to Gannon University’s faculty, administration and staff. We will also develop innovative solutions to meet the future needs of CETL stakeholders. We expect to determine those needs through various assessment techniques including personal contact, surveys, informal conversations, input from the CETL Advisory Board, the University’s stated objectives as well as other environmental changes in the world of instructional technology.
As Dr. Taylor’s pillars (Student Success and Leadership, Faculty Teaching and Scholarship, Globalization, Community/Erie-GAINS and Innovation) and the strategic plan III around those pillars begin to be clarified, CETL will support these endeavors.
