              In the Spring 2012 semester, the Center for the enhancement of Teaching and Learning partnered with the College of Arts & Sciences to design and deliver a Course Redesign Institute to assist a select number of Arts & Sciences faculty with incorporating more active learning techniques and educational technologies into new or existing courses. After a competitive RFP in November, a dozen faculty members were selected to participate, representing disciplines ranging from Anthropology to Math, from English to Sociology, from Geography to History. Prior to the start of the Spring 2012 semester, CELT partnered with A&S WRD professor Jeff Rice and Biology professor Peter Mirabito to build a private resource site using PBworks to expose faculty to a myriad of ideas for how to incorporate new active learning techniques and teaching technologies into their courses. During the Spring 2012 semester, CELT conducted webinars and a number of one-to-one consultations with the ASCRDI participants, helping them to refine and realize their course redesign visions. On April 27, CELT again partnered with A&S Associate Dean Ted Schatzki and Professors Rice and Mirabito to bring together our Course Redesign Institute participants one last time to share their course redesign strategies in a series of Ignite and Pecha Kucha-style presentations.
