The Reinert Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning honored 13 Certificate in University Teaching Skills recipients and 10 Foundations Certificate in University Teaching Skills recipients at our spring ceremony on Friday, May 4 in Boileau Hall.
Associate professor in the Department of Biology, Dr. Elena Bray Speth, 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 Alyah Alqahtani, Christine Ascencio, Ana Kent, Yunmei Kuang, Daphne Lew, Kelly Lovan-Gold, Abdalla Mohamed, Beth Petitjean, Nicole Ramer, Kristin Skubic, Dawn Wade, Kristin Wehmeyer, and Benjamin Winter. The recipients of the Foundations Certificate are Kaleigh Adrian, Anne Marie Anderson, Jocelyn Fowler, Victoria Fricke, Katherine Hu, Elizabeth Loesch, Kathleen Pham, Jakub Szpunar, Meghan Taylor, and Betelihem Tobo.
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.
