CETL Lessons from the Center for Excellence in Teaching in Learning

SOTL Mentor Program Deadline Tomorrow!
Application Deadline: Friday, September 30, 2011
Interested in scholarly research on teaching and learning? Former participants in this program have become published SOTL scholars and Wisconsin Teaching Fellows and Scholars. Meet once a month for conversation about teaching and learning challenges. Remember, if you're an active SOTL Scholar, we need you to apply to mentor new scholars ($500 stipend).

There is great value in allowing oneself time for reflection. Being involved in the Mentor Program gave me a chance to build the kind of collegiality a junior faculty member desperately needs. ~Karen Gibson, Human Services and Educational Leadership

Apply to be mentored or to be a mentor today.
