CEITL collaborates with other departments and offices to provide opportunities to enhance teaching skills, help educators connect better with their students and to help evaluate the effectiveness of methods of teaching.
Engagement and Faculty Development designs Academies and Workshops that foster the professional growth of UNH faculty at all levels. We help ensure that faculty members have access to resources they need to build rewarding careers. We enrich the faculty life cycle through faculty development, diversity and inclusion and strategic partnerships.
The University Writing Programs partners with the CEITL to offer January 1/2 day workshops for faculty in all disciplines. Workshops serve as a forum for faculty to learn new strategies, exchange ideas, and hone teaching practices. Recent workshops have dealt with a range of topics from assignment and syllabus design to managing collaborative writing assignments. Workshops are announced via email lists, the university calendar, newsletters, and on the UNH calendar. All faculty are encouraged to attend and to suggest topics. As opportunities present themselves, the UWP also offers less structured events, like brown bags, during the semester.
Office of Community, Equity and Diversity and CEITL hosted a webinar series titled Access, Equity, and Diversity: Faculty Supported Practices for Engaging Learners during COVID. The series focused on using Universal Design for Learning (UDL) as a framework for designing experiences to support students with diverse learning needs across a variety of teaching modalities.
UNH Global collaborates with CEITL on helping faculty and graduate students teach international students.
Academic Success (CFAR) offers presentations to UNH classes, departments, and offices that would like to learn more about our services.
