CEETL Supports Your Teaching

We are here to help you keep teaching banner

CEETL Registration is Now Open for Summer Programs!

CEETL is excited to offer a flexible and robust summer program that the university is supporting with funding from the CARES 2 act, which will allow faculty to receive compensation for upon completion of the 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 summer or fall to support our lecturer faculty. Check back often as new opportunities will be added.

    Online Teaching Lab: Flexible Summer Learning Community

Faculty Stipend: $1250 upon completion*

GTA Stipends: $550 upon completion*

Faculty may join the Quality Learning and Teaching Online Teaching Lab at any time and complete the activities asynchronously at your own pace, or you may choose to join the summer cohort if you enjoy the extra support that comes from working alongside a community of peers. 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.

In consultation with the California Faculty Association, we have now raised the stipend to $1250 for faculty who complete the OTL by January, 2021! All current and past OTL graduates will have stipends adjusted to the higher amounts. 

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

    Online Teaching Squares

Faculty 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.  

    Pedagogies for Inclusive Excellence (PIE) Institute

Justice, Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (JEDI) PIE Institute

Faculty Stipend: $500 upon completion*

The Summer JEDI PIE July 20-31, 2020 session is at capacity; more sessions will be added in Fall 2020. 

This Institute builds a community of JEDI (Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion) protagonists through 10 hours of practice of developing anti-racist pedagogy and dismantling white supremacy in online teaching. Special attention will be paid to accessibility and universal design for learning; microaggressions in teaching practices; anti-racism in designing assignments and assessments; and centering student voice and experience. Participants will have three opportunities for cohorted synchronous discussions, and will receive expert feedback on their responses to prompts, as well as the opportunity for individual consultations. Participants will identify and assess personal goals for anti-racist pedagogy practice in online teaching; examine and demonstrate knowledge of historical and contemporary institutional and individual racism and white supremacy in education practice; assess current assignments, assessments, and teaching practices through critical race perspective; and design strategies for inclusive and equitable engagement.

Note: Faculty who have already registered for the Equity, Inclusion and Diversity or Trauma Informed Teaching PIE Intensives have been added to this JEDI PIE Institute instead, please check your inbox for more information. We have combined the two topics and changed the format to consist of primarily asynchronous activities based on feedback.

 Follow this link to register for future sessions the JEDI PIE.

*Based on productive conversations with the Chancellor’s Office and California Faculty Association, the faculty stipend amounts for the CARES-2 funded faculty development activities have been finalized. All faculty are eligible for this stipend while the funding remains, and the higher amount will be applied retroactively to past Online Teaching Lab graduates.
