This past fall, the Saint Leo community celebrated an open house for its Center for Teaching & Learning Excellence. The center is designed to serve the university’s faculty by providing resources and support on the latest best practices in teaching. Saint Leo takes pride in being a teaching university, and the center helps to ensure faculty are leaders in this sector.
Through the center, faculty receive support and professional development for teaching in all modalities, including on ground, online, video teleconferencing, and working in interconnected classrooms, among other topics. In the past year and a half, more than 230 offerings have been provided. Additionally, the center now offers a dedicated website — faculty.saintleo.edu — where faculty can go to access a variety of resources.
“Our goal is to support faculty, serving as one central hub for resources and professional development,” said Dr. Candace Roberts, director for the Center for Teaching & Learning Excellence. “When we support our faculty, we are empowering them to better serve our students.”
