Graduate School Partnership

CELT values the improvement of teaching and learning across all instructional populations at the University of Kentucky. We frequently collaborate with The Graduate School to ensure that the graduate students at UK are empowered to do their best work in our classrooms on campus and beyond as they proceed through their careers.

CELT is an active participants in a number of events and programs organized by The Graduate School:

Innovation + Design Lab

Started 2013 by CELT, the Innovation + Design Lab (or I+D Lab) is a three-day, intensive event where faculty learn about a wide range of innovative pedagogical approaches and available teaching and learning technologies. Participants apply these new strategies toward creating engaging courses, interacting effectively with students, and ensuring that students achieve the learning objectives for their courses. The goal of the I+D Lab is to foster faculty creativity in teaching with technology.

International Partnerships

CELT has frequently partnered with academic units on campus in the service of international grants and partnerships. We have worked in long-term engagements with visiting faculty from Iraq (in partnership with the College of Engineering, the Gatton College of Business and Economics and the ESL Program in the College of Arts and Sciences), Pakistan (in partnership with the Gatton College of Business and Economics), and Afghanistan (in partnership with the College of Engineering).

eLII Partnership

In collaboration with The Office of the Provost and Analytics and Technology, CELT is please to be offering consultations and workshop opportunities for faculty funded through the three eLII grants:

A&S Course Redesign Institute: Spring 2012

In the Spring 2012 semester, the Center for the enhancement of Teaching and Learning partnered with the College of Arts & Sciences to design and deliver a Course Redesign Institute to assist a select number of Arts & Sciences faculty with incorporating more active learning techniques and educational technologies into new or existing courses. We're really thrilled to see the creative ideas that our faculty Institute participants have come up with to implement in their courses this Fall (some even started implementing their new ideas this Spring!). We look forward to working with other Course Redesign cohorts in Arts & Sciences and other Colleges at the University of Kentucky in 2012-13!

Self-Regulated Learners

Event Location: 
Niles Gallery, Lucille Little Library

Some have heard students say, “I didn’t learn anything in this course.” While this is frustrating to hear, there is a way to help students reflect on course activities. The purpose of this workshop is to provide an overview of self-regulated learning, and brainstorm strategies that encourage students to think about their own thinking to allow for more meaningful learning experiences.

For more information please contact David Sacks (david.sacks@uky.edu) or Cara Worick (cara.worick@uky.edu).

Rethinking Presentation Slides Using Assertion-Evidence Structure

Event Location: 
Niles Gallery, Lucille Little Library

Summer break is nearly here. A perfect time to rethink your course slide decks. This workshop encourages you to consider an alternative approach to slide design known as Assertion-Evidence Structure developed by Michael Alley at Penn State University. This technique eliminates bullets, minimizes text, and incorporates relevant graphics as a means to enhance learning and retention. I will share my experience in redesigning the slides for my Biology course.

The Good, the Bad, and The Ugly: Course and Teacher Evaluations

Event Location: 
Niles Gallery, Lucille Little Library

End-of-semester student course evaluations will be upon us soon. Time to be elated, depressed, angry, and confused. This workshop will explore how best to interpret the feedback so that it provides useful information for self-reflection on teaching practice. We will also discuss some of the myths regarding student evaluations and ways that you can supplement the limited feedback that the standardized forms supply. This workshop is part of the New Faculty Teaching Academy, but attendance is open to the entire campus.

Principles of Multimedia Learning

Event Location: 
Niles Gallery, Lucille Little Library

We will be taking a look at the multimedia learning theory developed by Richard Mayer and discussing how best to design multimedia in order for students to learn most effectively and avoid cognitive load.
