Congratulations to the Fall Certificate Ceremony Recipients

The Reinert Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning honored 7 Certificate in University Teaching Skills recipients and 3 Foundations Certificate in University Teaching Skills recipients at our spring ceremony on Friday, December 8, 2017 in the Sinquefield Stateroom in DuBourg Hall.

Associate professor in the Department of Psychology, Dr. Lisa Willoughby, 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 Cindy Bitter, Farah Habli, Shellie Hill, Sahar Joakim, Calvin Nyapete, Matthew Parker, and James Rooney. The recipients of the Foundations Certificate are Kholood Aldossary, Luis Pinto de Sals, and John Poehlmann.


The requirements for the Certificate in University Teaching Skills are themselves learning experiences that help participants to make deliberate and intentional choices about teaching. This ceremony acknowledged the time and commitment these participants gave to earning one of the Certificates. We also celebrated the dedication to teaching and learning shown by those faculty members who served as teaching mentors to the certificate recipients.
