The Humanizing Education, Learning, and Leadership Online/Offline (HELLO2) teaching certificate program is offered through the Texas A&M University Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE). Participants will learn and apply best practices to maximize learner motivation, engagement, and success. They will also explore teaching methods and approaches that highlight and promote the social and relational aspects of teaching and learning. The program focuses on student-centered teaching that takes student diversity and inclusion into account.

The certificate program is open to any TAMU faculty member (tenure-track or academic professional track) or staff member who has or will have teaching responsibilities at either the undergraduate or graduate level. It is highly customizable and participants will work with a CTE consultant to create an individualized professional development plan based on their interests, needs, and time availability.

Participants who successfully complete the two-semester program will receive a certificate signed by the Director of the TAMU Center for Teaching Excellence and the Associate Dean of Faculties for Faculty Development.

The certificate program includes:

  • Participation in two interactive workshops on student learning, success, and wellness facilitated by different units across the University. Participants will work with a Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) instructional consultant to identify suitable sessions on campus
  • Two individual consultations regarding teaching and learning with a CTE instructional consultant
  • One classroom teaching observation and follow-up consultation (third consultation) conducted by a CTE instructional consultant
  • Development and revision of course materials and teaching philosophy statements.

Participants have up to 2 consecutive long semesters (Fall-Spring, Spring-Fall) to complete all the requirements of the program to earn the certificate. It is rolling enrollment, but please note that it generally takes at least one semester to fulfill all requirements.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Apply best practices to maximize learner motivation, engagement, and success
  • Incorporate student-centered teaching practices in the design of courses, materials, assessments, and activities that promote diversity and inclusion of all students in the learning process
  • Articulate a personal philosophy of teaching
