Dillard University CTLAT Professional Development Workshops May 2012

The following information is being sent at the request of Provost Phyllis W. Dawkins:


Fair Dillard is at a cross-road and it is our responsibility – as the engaged faculty that we are – to cement its legacy as one of the best liberal arts colleges in the country. Many of you work tirelessly to craft intellectually stimulating syllabi and classroom experiences that offer students a dynamic experience. As Provost, I aspire to ensure that the university provides the resources necessary to build upon your work, strengthen Dillard’s brand as a small college whose graduates leave large footprints for others to follow. With that in mind, the Center for Teaching, Learning And Technology (CTLAT) writes to share details regarding next week’s Professional Development workshops (as indicated on the university’s Academic Calendar). Deans are asked to ensure maximum faculty attendance and participation. Faculty are reminded to sign-in, as this will become a part of your portfolio regarding scholarly service.
