ACTL

Greetings from the Center for Teaching & Learning.

I hope you are enjoying this stretch of beautiful weather we've been having!

I have spent a lot of time this past week poring over the results of the ACTL survey and have begun to plan programs based on your responses. I remind you that I have posted the reports generated by iSalient (our survey software) to our ACTL site:

http://moodle.augustana.edu/course/view.php?id=538

for anyone that may be interested. There you will also find results (in Excel) categorized by rank, thanks to the generous help(!) of Angie Williams and Mary Kilbride. This view has also been very helpful to me as I plan future programming and resources.  Speaking of which, here are a few to look for now and in the coming weeks:

For those avid readers of the ACTL section of the Faculty Newsletter, you will recall that I reported last week that "over 70% of you are interested or very interested in incorporating active learning strategies." Not only is this the most popular overall, in every rank this was the most requested teaching-oriented development opportunity. Planning has begun! Stay tuned.

Have a great week.
