The West Campus Center for Teaching/Learning Innovation would like to congratulate our first Active Learning Certificate recipients for 2017-2018.

  • Hunter Looney, faculty developer/instructional designer
  • Joseph Angle, adjunct professor, biology
  • Yasser Saad, professor, biology
  • Lynta Thomas, professor, chemistry
  • Michael Hristakopoulos, adjunct professor, political science
  • Dori Haggerty, campus director, faculty and instructional development
  • Cheri Cutter, professor, business
  • Milena Zaleckaite, adjunct professor, English for Academic Purposes
  • Milica Calovic, adjunct professor, biology

In order to receive certification, faculty were required to complete a total of 36 professional development hours of both required and recommended courses. This program is designed to provide faculty with a deeper understanding of how active learning impacts learning, while providing faculty the opportunity to share their best practices and innovative approaches to facilitating active learning strategies in their classes.

Below are some testimonials from some of this year’s participants.

The Active Learning Certification program will continue to evolve and incorporate research-based practices and professional development courses to enhance student engagement and learning. We look forward to awarding more active learning certificates in the upcoming year.
