Dear MCC CELT Colleagues:

Welcome back! We hope you are well rested and ready for an engaging Spring semester. CELT has a lot of relevant programming planned for this semester as we continue our conversations about teaching in our remote classrooms. Whether you are teaching remote live or asynchronous courses, our workshops are ready to support your teaching at MCC.

Join us for CELT workshops on Wednesday, January 20 and for our Spring 2021 guest speaker on Thursday, January 21 at 10:30 AM on Zoom. Dr. Jean Mandernach, Executive Director of the Center for Innovation in Research and Teaching at Grand Canyon University, will be speaking about engaging students in online and remote live classes. Her talk, Black Box Busters: Ideas to Enliven the Virtual Classroom promises to be an informative event with lots of strategies to use this spring.

This Spring, we will be running monthly CELT Tech Talks: What’s New for Teaching? to talk about what new technology can you bring to your synchronous or asynchronous classroom. The series starts off in February with Use the Rich Content Editor to Make Your Content Rich!

Our monthly SOTL sessions will cover numerous topics, including a recap of ideas from the Temple Conference for Teaching Excellence, Harnessing Emotion and Hope: Learning in Turbulent Times and Beyond, The Mystery of Grading: What is Everything Worth? and Trauma Informed Teaching: Preparing Us for Fall 2021.

In a recent keynote by Dr. Kevin Gannon, a statement that resonated with me was “Learning is often uncomfortable.” How can we work to eliminate barriers to student success and be more inclusive in our classrooms? The role of educators is constantly changing. As professors, we are growing in many unexpected ways as we become more comfortable with remote teaching, and are continuing to learn new pedagogical approaches. As we move forward, we don’t always have all the answers, but through innovation and creativity we can figure it out together. CELT is here to support you on this journey.

Have a successful spring semester!

Be well and healthy, Susan
