Events in the Center for Teaching and Learning stimulate campus-wide conversations about teaching, learning, and assessment. Faculty members share ideas and best practices in a collegial environment. They explore research on pedagogical issues and innovations in higher education. CTL events include face-to-face workshops, "Cookies and Conversations," "Lunch and Learn," and program meetings.
Faculty interested in facilitating a CTL session should submit a CTL Events Form (LINK COMING SOON).

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.
- JC102: Survey of College Teaching
JC102 is a fully online professional development session that allows faculty to overview several topics pertinent to education, and dig deeper into one of them. The course project supports adjuncts as they work to incorporate pedagogically sound methods and materials into their courses.
- 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.
