Center for Teaching and Learning

 

University of Dallas Center for Teaching and Learning

Welcome to the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL). Director: Jacob Moldenhauer (Physics), Committee members: David Upham (Politics), Sr. Elinor Gardner (Philosophy), Jennifer Bannister (Business: Accounting), Zannah Buck (Library), Sarah Berry (English), Mark Peterson (History), and Ana Henriquez (Academic Success).

The Center for Teaching and Learning is a cross-disciplinary, faculty-led initiative to support excellence in teaching, scholarship, professional development, and convivial collegiality.  

The Center is working to develop a new program for the upcoming academic year that will, of course, include weekly lunches at noon on Wednesday, Fruits of Sabbatical, the writing group and several new initiatives. 

 This is the CTL lunch schedule for the first few sessions of Spring 2023.  We will be adding the rest of the semester lunch schedule as soon as we have confirmations.

Faculty Writing Group: This group meets on average every other week. “Writing” is understood broadly here: in past semesters, though many participants have been working on articles or books, some faculty have used this group to help them work on grant applications, sustain a series of research meetings, and gather equipment and staff for summer research projects. Anything that contributes to your research that requires long-range planning would qualify as “writing” here. To learn more, email Dr. Sarah E. Berry at sberry@udallas.edu.

If you have received an award or achieved an accomplishment that you would like to share with your colleagues, please email Dr. Mark Petersen at mpetersen@udallas.edu.

Information on the Writing Group, Writing Retreat and the Fruits of Sabbatical coming soon. If you have any suggestions for future or current programming, please email, Dr. Jacob Moldenhauer ctl@udallas.edu
