Welcome to the Center for Teaching and Learning's website
This year, the CTL will be offering month-long online workshops covering a range of topics (see below). These workshops allow participants to access the materials from home and on their own schedule. Readings, resources, and assignments for reflection will be a large component. Participants will exchange ideas and feedback with one another and will be invited to come together for discussion and reflection.
Additionally, the CTL provides support through a Faculty in Residence program. Throughout the year, a few faculty are selected to showcase their skills and talents in order to help other develop best practices in instruction and student support.
THIS MONTH'S WORKSHOP
Creating an Environment for Veteran Success
Online Workshop: As U.S. military forces
continue to draw down in theater, the U.S. is beginning to see waves of
veterans attending school. Olympic College, set in the middle of four Naval
institutions, is no exception. In fact, it is one demographic that continues to
increase in enrollment numbers while others are declining. Are you prepared to
receive them in your classroom or work area? Attend this workshop to learn
about military/veteran service, what it is like for veteran students on campus,
and tips for how to successfully welcome veteran students into your classroom
or work area.
