by Dr. Gina Merys, Assistant Director for Faculty and Graduate Student Development
The Center honored a record number of 50 Certificate in University Teaching Skills recipients at our Spring Ceremony on Friday, 4 May.
After warm welcomes from Dr. Debra Rudder Lohe, Director of the Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning, and Dr. Paaige Turner, Associate Vice-President for International and Academic Affairs, keynote speaker, Dr. Lynda Morrison, professor in the Department of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology, imparted her words of wisdom on teaching and learning to the recipients, friends, and family in attendance.
The Reinert Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning enhances the quality of undergraduate and graduate education by offering two certificates for graduate students and (full- and part-time) faculty: the Participation Certificate in University Teaching Skills and the more comprehensive Certificate in University Teaching Skills. The Participation Certificate can be earned by attending ten Effective Teaching Seminars, which are offered on a regular basis by the CTTL. The Certificate in University Teaching Skills, with more complex requirements, results in a professional Teaching Portfolio. Certificates are awarded twice a year, at the fall and spring semester Certificate Ceremonies.
