Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL)
Established in the fall of 2009, the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) at Doane College provides professors and teachers instructional practices and materials which can be immediately implemented to the benefit of their students.
CETL strongly believes in a philosophy where faculty support faculty. This philosophy is reflected in the programming of CETL which provides a number of opportunities each year for members of the Doane faculty to share their experiences and best practices with other members of the faculty. This is complemented by bringing other educators to campus to share their experiences and best practices.
Offerings of CETL center around instructional elements found in Doane's mission and the latest Doane Strategic Long-Range Plan. Offerings currently include assistance with developing the following:
- innovative and effective instruction and assessment practices focusing on assisting faculty in helping students develop their critical thinking, communication, and leadership skills,
- interdisciplinary offerings (learning communities and the Arts Are Basic program), and
- service-learning opportunities.
CETL also provides a unique program, Tri-Guide, which connects new faculty with tenured faculty to the benefit of them all.
