DisCover is the Journal of the York Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning. Published annually, DisCover showcases scholarship of teaching and learning by York faculty.
The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) invites proposals from York faculty to present workshops, roundtables, panel discussions, or brown bag discussions that promote faculty development around teaching and learning. Since there is a deep base of knowledge related to innovative pedagogy and the scholarship of teaching and learning at York, faculty are invited to share their expertise by developing a CETL event. If you are interested in presenting on a topic related to teaching and learning, please complete the CETL Presentation Proposal Application and forward it to Debra Swoboda, CETL Director, AC 4D06. If you have any questions or comments, please contact Debra Swoboda at x2686 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Title III Grant Award Recipients and Project Abstracts
The Title III faculty grant program is open to all full-time faculty at York College. While all proposals to improve student learning are welcomed, York is particularly interested in using this year’s Title III funding in support of research into teaching and learning that investigates pedagogies of engagement that enable students to acquire the abilities and understanding they will need for the 21st century. Veteran faculty who might want to change but have little time for pedagogical explorations because of heavy teaching loads, and early-career faculty who might feel it is a risk to try something new, are especially encouraged to apply. Individuals who have received a previous Title III faculty grant are eligible to apply.
