The CTEI Advisory Board is currently a walk-on committee, meaning any full or part-time faculty member is welcome to join. Full-time instructors looking to fulfill their contractual obligation of college-wide committee involvement or participation in shared governance can do so without the worry of going through an election. Part-time instructors receive a stipend for participation in accordance with their contract.
The Advisory Board meets one Monday a month from 3:30-4:30 PM to discuss HF(C)C 101 (orientation for new full-time faculty) and professional development opportunities (books, topics,and delivery methods)that would best serve our teachers. We hope to build committee membership from each of the four schools (including both full and part-time teachers)to ensure that our content is both relevant and useful for all faculty.
In addition to planning specific sessions, the CTEI Advisory Board hopes to partner with college departments and schools to advertise innovative curriculum design and delivery in their areas. For example, the School of STEM will hold a series of professional development opportunities this fall – Math Colloquium – that is currently focused on our blog. We are also building on last year’s collaboration with UM-Dearborn’s Teaching Hub to bring Jose Bowen to both campuses on September 21. Your input will guide us towards innovative ways to build a campus community of inquiry and best teaching practices.
Still undecided? Attend our first meeting on Monday, August 27 from 3:30 to 4:30 in the Hackett Conference Room (G-Building- enter through the School of Health and Human Services Office).
