Faculty Development Events contribute to student success in a learning-centered community by cultivating and supporting teaching excellence. The CTL hosts a series of workshops, conversations, webinars and learning groups – some in collaboration with Faculty Fellows, CTL Leaders and other Pratt Institute offices and departments. For more information, please check the calendar and the ‘What’s New’ announcements.
RSVP for Events
Learning Design Conversations
This Spring semester, we’ll continue our conversations about Learning Design, inspired by L Dee Fink’s (2013) book, Creating Significant Learning Experiences. This semester the conversation will focus on course-level assessments, including but not limited to grading, feedback and criteria.
Learning Design is a skill that relies on different conceptual tools – and as with any skill, it requires practice, repetition, engagement, purposefulness and feedback. I look forward to seeing many of at these events!
NEW! Contemporary Trends in Pedagogy: A Reading Circle at the Center for Teaching and Learning
This semester the focus of the Reading Circle will be Teaching with Diversity. At each Reading Circle session we will talk about one selected article, which we’ll ask the participants to read ahead of time. We look forward to a thoughtful exchange with many of you at these events, grounded in contemporary literature on Pedagogy!
New Faculty Support
New Faculty, welcome to Pratt Institute! It’s wonderful that you joined our community. Pratt’s CTL supports you through programs specifically designed for new faculty success. Sign up for an individual consultations regarding any questions on the topic teaching in general, course or assignment design, syllabus, course management or grading.
Faculty Scholarship Colloquium
This Spring, the CTL will host a Faculty Scholarship Colloquium, centered around the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, or SoTL in short.
Faculty scholarship is defined broadly: in additional to research in the field and scholarship of teaching and learning, it also includes activities of ‘discovery’, ‘integration’, and ‘engagement’ with teaching and learning at an Art and Design school.
