Teaching and Learning

Teaching and Learning is at the heart of what we do at Grand View, and CETL’s mission is to support teaching and learning in all its forms. We offer a range of programming, consultations, workshops, and other opportunities for faculty and academic staff to develop as teachers and professionals—everything from “just in time” teaching tips to technology training to assisting departments in course and curriculum design. Working with individual faculty, departments, and the general academic community, CETL serves in advocacy, mentoring, and developmental roles for Grand View. We create the space for an ongoing conversation about teaching and learning.

As a newer addition to our CETL website, here is a link to our weekly Teaching Tips Blog.

Resources for Part-time or Adjunct Instructors

CETL co-sponsors (with the Dean’s Office) an orientation program and workshop for part-time faculty shortly before the beginning of each semester. CETL’s programming and resources are available for all part- and full-time Grand View faculty and academic staff. Part-time faculty are encouraged to use the CETL and its computer workstations if they wish to avail themselves of additional workspace. Further resources for part-time faculty may be found on Blackboard, where CETL staff maintain a “Part-Time Faculty Orientation and Resources” course site (login required).  If you find you do not have access to these resources, contact the CETL staff.
