We have organized our faculty development curriculum around three main curricular components — foundational knowledge, specialized knowledge and peer learning community — which we refer to as Slices of Pedagogies for Inclusive Excellence (PIE). All of our certificates consist of our Slices of PIE. The PIE Slices support faculty as they build community, expand upon their teaching foundations, engage in critical practice and reflect upon their personal and professional growth. Once faculty participate and complete all three courses — Slices of PIE — they will receive a certificate on a theme related to PIE.
PIE Slices Breakdown
Foundational Teaching Skills
Develop Foundational Teaching Skills through a series of workshops or an institute.
Develop Specialized Knowledge through a deep dive into a disciplinary subject with faculty experts.
Peer Learning Communities
Engage in semester-long Peer Learning Communities with faculty peers to reflect on teaching practices.
Reflective Teaching Practice
Teaching artifacts and reflections that demonstrate an application of these pedagogies Reflective Teaching Practice.

Please note, that stipends for faculty completion of CEETL course offerings were made possible through one-time emergency federal funding (CARES and HEERF) for COVID-19. This funding source has now concluded. CEETL courses remain available as open resources for the campus community, though stipends for completion will no longer be awarded.
