Professional Development – Center for Teaching Excellence

2015-2016 Update

The Center for Teaching Excellence and its coordinator continued to play a pivotal this year in the development of the QEP and its accompanying career exploration package Campus2Careers. In addition to developing and implementing Blackboard tutorials and mandatory online training course for faculty, the center also supported the development of Weekend College Coursework constrained to hybrid Friday evening and Saturday classes.  



The Center for Teaching Excellence figured prominently into 2015 professional development providing instruction in preparation of full scale 2015-2016 implementation of Blackboard Integration for all courses. The center supported by the Lee College Instructional Designer, provided Blackboard training in course development and management for faculty individually and in group sessions throughout the academic year. Mandatory migration to Blackboard will further engage the center in 2015-2016.
