Program Overview

Workshops will be offered on a rotating basis, three workshops per semester. Workshop schedules will be varied to meet diverse faculty needs, workshops can be taken in any order, and there is no time limit to complete the program. However, in order to receive a certificate of completion, faculty will need to successfully complete all six workshops. See additional evaluation methods below.



Workshops will include short participant surveys and assessments, and faculty will be required to maintain a Reflective Teaching Portfolio that can be made available for collegial review at the time of completion. Those who receive a certificate will be invited to comment on other teaching portfolios, promoting a community of teaching practice.

Additional information on Teaching Portfolios can be found on the CET web site under links and in the archives of the Adjunct Institute at
