They explore research on pedagogical issues and innovations in higher education. CTL events include face-to-face workshops, "Lunch and Learn," and program meetings.

CTL Topics and Schedule for Spring 2022

1-25-22 Faculty In-Service Day Teaching Students to Understand, Not Just Learn Janet Akers

This CTL session will cover active learning strategies for instructors to implement in
their classroom. Active learning helps students understand the correct way to
understand material by incorporating practical strategies, distributed practice, and the
study cycle. Participants will be introduced to the forgetting curve to help students
understand how to study using chunking, concept maps, study cycles and Pomodoro
technique. Participants will also be supplied with a learning strategies inventory tool
for students, this inventory tool is used as a predictor to course grades, based on the
student's study strategies.

1-28-22 Richard Stephenson Academic Success Center

This presentation will focus on the role of learning centers in higher education.  There will be discussion on the purposes of learning centers, reasons why students choose to visit learning centers, why they may choose not to visit a learning center, how learning centers can support students, and the role learning centers play in academic performance, persistence and retention.

2-11-22 Library Support for Faculty Librarians (Taylor Humphreys and Joe Kohlburn) will give a short orientation to Open Educational Resources (OER), provide examples and links that you can use in your classroom, and pointers for how to implement OER for the benefit of your students. Joe and Taylor will answer your questions and provide a short overview of library resources.

AAC&U What Liberal Education Looks Like presents a guiding vision of educational excellence that is grounded in equity and inclusion. In distilling the principles, practices, and contemporary challenges of liberal education, this signature AAC&U publication clearly describes the learning all students need for success in an uncertain future and for addressing the compelling issues we face as a democracy and as a global community—regardless of where they study, what they major in, or what their career goals are.

New Faculty Mentoring

New faculty are assigned a mentor to assist and support them as they join the community of Jefferson College educators. The primary goals are improving teaching and learning and improving the quality of professional relationships. These mentors provide monthly workshops on best practices used in teaching and assessment of expected learning outcomes, they offer periodic evaluation of classroom performance, and they provide teaching demonstration opportunities.

Faculty Development Mentoring

Faculty are provided opportunities to increase their teaching effectiveness in traditional and online environments through courses offered several times per year. Applied pedagogy and hands-on activities ensure Jefferson College instructors have a strong foundation in the most effective teaching practices. In addition, stipends are awarded for successful completion of each course. Faculty interested in taking one of these courses should complete the Request for Enrollment in a Professional Development Course.

  • JC101: Orientation to Teaching
    JC101 is a fully online orientation session that covers College policies, procedures and available resources. Faculty converse with their colleagues as they work through the course material at their own pace over three weeks. They receive extensive support from the Division of Online Learning throughout the course as they develop skills be as successful as possible from their first semester at the College. 

  • Faculty Certification Course for Online and Hybrid Teaching
    Online courses require teaching techniques that can differ greatly from traditional classroom instruction. Prior to teaching online or hybrid courses, faculty must complete this course. The program equips full-time and adjunct faculty with the basic skills necessary to create a successful online learning environment for students.
