CETL has a sustainable structure

The Center for Teaching and Learning at PPCC has implemented a sustainable structure for the future to broaden the opportunities for faculty involvement in teaching innovations. The model includes …

• Director
• Program Coordinators
• Committee Members

This model creates a dynamic environment for sharing ideas and pedagogy/andragogy training while maintaining institutional knowledge and stability through rotation of CETL team members. Announcements for vacant positions are posted and applications accepted each spring.
