The Reinert Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning honored eight Certificate in University Teaching Skills recipients and two Foundations Certificate in University Teaching Skills recipients at our Fall Ceremony on Friday, December 4, 2015 from 3:30-5:00 in Boileau Hall.
Long-time board member and professor in the Department of Economics, Dr. Patrick Welch, began the ceremony by sharing a reflection on teaching with the recipients, friends, and family in attendance.
This semester’s Certificate in University Teaching Skills recipients are Elissa Cutter, Joseph Espiritu, Elizabeth Jolley, Plamena Koseva, Daniel Pruitt, A. Maureen Wangard, Greg Williams, and Jie Yang. The recipients of the Foundations Certificate are Aaron Cohn and Maria Habboushi. We also celebrated the dedication to teaching and learning shown by those faculty members who served as teaching mentors to the certificate recipients.
The requirements for the Certificate in University Teaching Skills are themselves learning experiences that help participants to make deliberate and intentional choices about teaching. Friday’s ceremony acknowledged the time and commitment these participants gave to earning one of the Certificates.
