The Center for Teaching Excellence offers many different workshops covering a wide range of topics ranging from classroom management and course design to instructional technology and inclusive teaching. They are offered on a consistent schedule each semester. The workshops are informal and interactive and offer faculty and staff a safe environment to share and discuss their experiences.

HELLO2 TEACHING CERTIFICATE PROGRAM

One of the University’s major initiatives is to provide TAMU students with transformative learning experiences. The Humanizing Education, Learning, and Leadership On/Offline (HELLO2) program is designed to provide faculty and staff opportunities to learn more about the following focus areas:
 
1.         Active Learning and Student Engagement
2.         Transformational Teaching and Learning
3.         Learner-Centered Teaching
4.         Instructional Technology for Student Learning and Engagement
 
Upon successful completion of the program, participants will receive a certificate through the Center for Teaching Excellence signed by Dr. Heather Wilkinson, Associate Dean of Faculties and Dr. Debra Fowler, the Director of the Center for Teaching Excellence. 
 
Participants beginning the program Fall 2018 will complete the following requirements over 2 consecutive long semesters (Fall-Spring, Spring-Fall). (Please note that we have updated the requirements. New participants who are starting Fall 2018 will have 2 long semesters. Particpants who started Fall 2017 or Spring 2018 still have 3 long semesters to complete the program.)

  • Attend a total of 7 workshops (1 program overview session, 3 required sessions, and 3 elective sessions). Participants will complete the program overview session first. All other sessions can be taken in any order. Program sessions will be facilitated by the Center for Teaching Excellence, Instructional Technology Services, Center for Disability and Development, Disability Services, and the College of Liberal Arts.  
  • Participants will work individually with a Center for Teaching Excellence Instructional Consultant. These 2 required meetings may include discussions on teaching philosophy, course syllabus, and other topics related to transformational instruction.
