The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) and the Center for Digital Learning and Instructional Technology (DLiT) created a comprehensive plan to support faculty during the summer semester in preparation for fall.  The support offerings are based on these assumptions and goals and are divided broadly into four categories:

1:1 Consultations

There are over 60 individuals who can provide 1:1 consultations. Click on the links for additional details on how to schedule a consultation.

Center for Digital Learning and Instructional Technology

Center for Teaching and Learning Consultation Options:

  • Accountability partners: the CTL will assist you in finding a faculty partner to regularly check on each other's progress and exchange ideas.  Email ctale@andrews.edu.
  • CTL Faculty Fellows Program: learn more about this new initiative.
  • Peer Support: faculty across the campus have agreed to help their colleagues and they have identified areas where they can help.  Contact these amazing colleagues or become one by adding your name to the list.
  • Peer Mentoring: typically offered fall and spring only, the mentoring program will be  available to faculty during the summer term.  Let us know if you would like a peer mentor by filling out this form or by emailing ctale@andrews.edu

Synchronous Group Training (via Zoom)

There are 3-4 weekly synchronous group training sessions planned divided into four categories:

  • Mondays with Marsha: learn how to use LearningHub and its various tools. 
  • Blended Teaching Tuesdays: learn tools and strategies from faculty and staff.
  • Course-Tune Up Wednesdays: attend a set of three sessions in June or July to design a resilient course.
  • Other training: beginning June 11 and throughout the summer, there are a variety of sessions scheduled to support faculty and staff in a number of areas.

Learn more by clicking on each individual session through our Eventbrite Page.  This  calendar at-a-glance can provide an overview of the schedule. Emails with updates and reminders will be sent only once per week on Monday mornings.  However, the links with information are updated regularly and are always up-to-date. If you save these links, you will always have the information you need to participate in training and support.  Please register for the synchronous sessions through the EventBrite page.  Eventbrite will send two reminders and will automatically send the Zoom link to those who registered. It will also give you the option to add the event to your personal calendar during registration.  If at any point, you are experiencing challenges with registration, contact ctale@andrews.edu.  If you are unable to join a session in progress, contact dlit@andrews.edu. All summer sessions will use the same Zoom link. Registrations are helpful for planning and we encourage them.  However, you can save the Zoom link provided here for future use should you need to join a session for which you were unable to register in advance.

Departmental faculty meetings: many faculty have reported that their faculty meetings focused on teaching during a pandemic have been very beneficial.  We can attend these meetings to provide support as needed. Contact ctale@andrews.edu, dlit@andrews.edu and we will find someone to assist you.
