Center for Teaching Excellence
As part of its strategic plan for 2008-2013, Salem College recently opened its Center for Teaching Excellence.
The director of the center is Heidi Godfrey, associate professor of dance and one of the co-chairs of the Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) planning committee for Salem. She says her role is to "assist faculty in innovative teaching by offering workshops, panels, discussions, guest speakers, information about conferences and general resources."
The Center for Teaching Excellence and Innovation aims to improve the quality of teaching and learning at Salem College through pedagogical development for faculty.
* To initiate programs and implement services that support all members of the faculty in their teaching roles.
* To introduce innovative teaching techniques, including the use of instructional technology.
* To foster campus-wide conversations about enhancing student learning.
* To provide web-based resources for faculty understanding and application of innovative teaching practices.
* To engage in inquiry and reflection that address Salem College’s evolving teaching and learning needs.
* To strengthen faculty advising as part of the teaching process at Salem College.
The Center is located in Room 205 of the Single Sisters House. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 336-721-2600.
