Throughout the semester we host a number of special events to inform, inspire, and encourage faculty to adopt evidence-based teaching practices.
Service-Learning Workshop with Dr. Melody Bowdon, Executive Director of the Karen L. Smith Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning and Associate Dean of Undergraduate Studies for the University of Central Florida.
Gender and Technology Address with Dr. Stephanie Vie, Chair of the Department of Writing and Rhetoric at the University of Central Florida.
Student Innovation Awards with the Task Force on Innovation and the Dean of Students office. In support of digital literacies across our campus, the Student Innovation Awards asks students to innovate some aspect of Riddle, given a budget of $5,000. Winners have the opportunity to have their projects funded by the campus and can win prize money up to $1000 for individuals and $2000 for small groups.
In addition to presenting our faculty with the CTLE Yearbook, a chronicle of faculty participation in funded programs for the previous year, we hosted keynote speaker Dr. Peter Felten, who gave an address on “What Matters Most for Student Success?” In addition, CTLE hosted a book discussion of The Undergraduate Experience: Focusing Institutions on What Matters Most, by Felten et al. Felten also delivered a workshop to faculty teaching gateway courses.
