ACTL

Greetings from the Center for Teaching & Learning.

I hope that you will be able to take some time soon to reflect on the academic year that is about to come to an end. Of course I hope that reflection will include many, many successes that you have enjoyed this past year in your teaching and in your student's learning!

For the last ACTL newsletter of the year, I would like to take my cue from Ellen Hay and look to the future.  If you were not able to attend last Friday's conversation, perhaps you have had a chance to read and reflect on some of the questions she posed in last week's newsletter. I'm sure that, like me, you will find them thought-provoking.

Among the many important questions she poses, several stand out as particularly relevant to me as director of ACTL:


I offer you two responses to the first question, for your consideration. The first, our very own General Education Goals: Knowledge, Skills & Dispositions; the second, The Essential Learning Outcomes from the Association of American Colleges and Universities. For the last three questions, I welcome your thoughts! I'm listening.

It's been a privilege serving as ACTL director this year. Thank you for helping make it so.

Jon Clauss
