The CTE offers a variety of services to faculty, including:
Development Grants -- Berry College funds summer grants
for course development to encourage faculty members to engage in
professional activities during the summer that will: (1) greatly enhance
courses they teach; (2) contribute to the goals and objectives of their
department, school, and college; and (3) employ teaching initiatives
that can serve as a model for other faculty. It is expected that grants
will be used for initiatives that go well beyond normal levels of
preparation for new course assignments.
- Videotape Service -- The CTE offers a
videotaping service for faculty who request it as a means of getting an
objective perspective on one’s teaching practices. Videotapes of
classroom sessions are confidential and available only to that faculty
member unless s/he requests the tape be reviewed by the Director or one
of the Teaching Fellows as part of a consultation.
- Resource Center -- The CTE has a
collection of books available in Memorial Library.
- Workshops -- The CTE sponsors 3-5
workshops for faculty each year. These workshops offer faculty the
chance to learn and practice strategies, approaches or techniques with
one or more expert facilitators. Topics for the workshops range from
applications for teaching technology to evaluation strategies to
professional development (see this semester's Schedule).
- Berry Innovators' Series -- Highlighting
the work of Berry faculty, this series of demonstrations followed by
discussion allows the Berry community the opportunity to learn about the
innovative pedagogical strategies developed by our colleagues.
