Director’s Welcome

We hope that you had a successful fall semester and are ready for an engaging and exciting spring at Georgia State! As a campus center, CETL continues to support the university community in the best practices of engaged teaching and learning. We serve as a resource for all instructors, from first-time graduate assistants and part time instructors, to seasoned faculty, and offer a variety of professional development opportunities and workshops that are open to the entire Georgia State community including all Perimeter campuses.

A few highlights of our programming that we are excited to share include the new CETL Teaching for Social Justice speaker series that brings faculty and students together to discuss challenging and important issues and ATL Studies/Atlanta Maps, which supports the creation of projects infusing digital literacy with pedagogy. We have several new active learning classrooms that instructors can apply to teach in, and we have expanded our Scholarship of Teaching & Learning (SoTL) research support.

Our five Faculty-Teaching & Learning Communities (Faculty-TaLCs) continue this spring:

  • Surviving (and Enjoying) Your First Year of Teaching
  • Digital Literacy Across the Curriculum
  • Exploring Adaptive and Personalized Learning
  • Problem-Based Learning (PBL) in STEM Education at Perimeter College
  • Changing your Students’ Minds: Student Motivation and Self-Efficacy

Be on the lookout for the call for applications for the 2017-18 Faculty Teaching Fellows and Mini-grant applications due at the end of the semester. We look forward to seeing you at our workshops, the Conference on Scholarly Teaching on May 12th, and other CETL events!

We always welcome your input and suggestions and are here to serve the GSU instructional community If you have an idea for a workshop, Faculty-TaLC or topic to explore please email me at lcarruth@gsu.edu.
Have a great semester,
Laura Carruth
Director, CETL
