GLCA Center for Teaching and Learning Receives Teagle Grant

 

The Great Lakes Colleges Association has received a grant of $300,000 from the Teagle Foundation to establish a GLCA Consortial Center for Teaching and Learning. This consortial center will exist not as a physical place but as a community of faculty members with demonstrated commitment to improving teaching and learning across all of GLCA's colleges.  This Center will stimulate thinking and foster new approaches to teaching undergraduates by providing access to resources in support of effective pedagogy beyond what any single college can offer. It will also encourage a more substantial focus on effective liberal arts education by providing opportunities for faculty members of a given college to present and engage with colleagues of other institutions in consortial events hosted in both digital and face-to-face venues.  This GLCA Center for Teaching and Learning will contribute substantially to the professional development of faculty members, creating a community of practice focused on effective teaching and learning across multiple colleges and academic disciplines.

Hope to Host GLCA.IT Conference 2015

 

The 2015 conference will offer topics surrounding some of the hard, technical issues faced today and in the future. Additionally, exploring the softer side of IT work and discuss how communities work to support technology and how technology works to support community. It is hoped that the conference will help focus attention on one's own community as well as provide support by the larger community of the GLCA. Hope faculty Carl Heideman, Jeff Pestun and Marge Wiersma will be the planners for this years conference.

The Spring 2015 conference on Cultures and Languages Across the Curriculum (CLAC) focuses on building relationships to serve an expanded population. At this, our 9th conference, CLAC is reflecting on past achievements and planning future directions. Currently there is increased national attention on and support for developing international and cross-cultural perspectives in the curriculum. Programs like 100K Strong in the Americas and Generation Study Abroad create even more opportunities to spotlight the role of CLAC principles/practices in shaping the next "generation of leaders who can reach across borders" whether physical, linguistic, cultural, or curricular.
