CEETL Supports Your Teaching

We are here to help you keep teaching banner

CEETL Registration is Now Open for Summer Programs!

Drawing on 900 faculty responses to a recent survey assessing your interest, need, and likely participation, CEETL is excited to offer a flexible and robust summer program that the university is supporting with funding from the CARES 2 act. That support will allow faculty to receive compensation for the select professional development activities below.

Summer Faculty Development Activities

These four summer offerings are optional, span a variety of synchronous and asynchronous modalities, and most can be taken individually, in sequence, or simultaneously. You choose! Certificates of completion, digital badges, and stipends* will be awarded upon completion of the requirements for each program, and will be paid out in June or September to support our lecturer faculty. Check back often as new opportunities will be added.

    Online Teaching Lab: Flexible Summer Learning Community

Expected stipend*: $750 upon completion.

The popular Quality Learning and Teaching Online Teaching Lab will be offered in cohorts as a 6-week course from June 26 to August 6, with a focus on supporting faculty who are preparing to teach online this fall. This session will be the same course and the same material as our May Learning Community, but with a longer timeline offering greater flexibility for participants.  If you are already enrolled in the Online Teaching Lab, there’s nothing you need to do and no one you need to notify -- we will email you the week the course begins. You are also free to complete this course asynchronously at your own pace. All current and past OTL graduates will have stipends adjusted to the increased amount.

If you have not already registered for the June cohort, please enroll here. (You will be prompted to login to iLearn.)

    Online Teaching Squares

Expected stipend*: $500 upon completion.

Join 3 other colleagues to form a supportive and non-evaluative “teaching square” in which you review, observe and learn from each other’s online course development and inclusive teaching practices through the fall semester. The groupings and timing for teaching squares are flexible. You may propose your own group of four or ask to be added to a group based on your timing and interests, and you may choose a structured summer start, and informal summer start, or a formal fall start.  

Please indicate your interest in participating in an Online Teaching Square here.  

    High Impact Course Redesign Projects

Expected stipend*: Ranging from $1000-1500 per accepted participant, up to a maximum of $15,000 per project.

Propose a summer project to redesign high impact courses that are especially critical for student success and progress to degree, using this proposal template. Special consideration for selection and funding will go to courses with high enrollment, equity gaps, high DFW rates, and/or particular challenges for transitioning to online modalities. Chair and dean approval will be requested prior to awarding of funding. 

Please submit your High Impact Course Redesign project proposal here by 5pm on June 15, 2020. 

    Pedagogies for Inclusive Excellence (PIE) Intensives: Special Topics

Expected stipend*: $300 upon completion 

Join your colleagues for synchronous and asynchronous engagement bursts on special topics related to inclusive pedagogies in online environments. These PIE Intensives will consist of 7-hours over a period of 2 or 3 days, with dates determined by the availability of the facilitators and participant interest.  

  • PIE Intensive Topics Include:
  • Trauma Informed Pedagogy 
  • Equity & Inclusion in Online Environments
  • Online Writing Strategies & GWAR
  • Instructional Video and Graphics Production
  • Other topics may be added. 

Please indicate your interest for each PIE Intensive for future follow-up here.

*Expected stipends may be subject to change based on funding availability and conversations with the Chancellor’s Office and California Faculty Association, but we do not expect them to decrease in amount.
