Programs

CATL Programs to help advance teaching and learning at Elon include signature Fellowship and Grant programs such as:

In addition, CATL facilitates interdisciplinary Working Groups and Communities of Practice focused on areas of common interest to foster the exchange of ideas, designing effective teaching and learning environments, and problem solving:

  • Course Design Working Groups — small groups focused on designing or redesigning a course
  • Assignment Alignment Working Groups — groups of colleagues focused on designing effective assignments aligned with course learning goals
  • Strategic and Meaningful Career Planning — a small faculty cohort focused on intentional planning through goal-setting, targeted professional development, and mutual mentoring.
  • Topical Communities of Practice (CoP) — CATL frequently facilitates communities of practice around a specific teaching or learning topic for groups who share a common interest and want to develop related ideas or projects. Current and past CoPs have formed around SoTL, contemplative pedagogy, and game-based learning, for example. Communities of practice are fairly informal, non-hierarchical, and are open to interested people at all levels of knowledge and expertise from novice to expert. If there is a teaching topic you’d like to suggest, or a group you’d like to organize into a community of practice with support from CATL, contact Deandra Little or CATL to explore possibilities.
