Celebration of Teaching
With this event, CELT seeks to acknowledge the efforts of Stony Brook educators who use exceptional teaching practices, dispositions, and proficiencies. Moreover, these instructors demonstrate outstanding passion for teaching; personal concern for students; and a devotion to inspire and nurture a learning desire in their students.
For the second year in a row, CELT put out a call to students, to ask them if they wanted to give thanks to any educator that made a difference in their learning experience. Thank you, to all the educators.
National Distance Learning Week
Online Teaching Certificate (OTC) Courses
CELT offers the OTC multiple times a year with two options: OTC and OTC Accelerated. These multi-week online courses will provide you with basic pedagogical, research-based practices specific to the online space and will assist you in planning instructional activities for your course. We will not focus on how to use Blackboard, but rather how to best use technology to meet your pedagogical goals. These courses will be delivered asynchronously online with one optional synchronous session.
- OTC: This is a 5-week asynchronous course. Plan on spending 3-4 hours per week with assignments due weekly. We suggest logging on 4 times/week during this course.
- OTC Accelerated: This is a condensed, 2 1/2-week version of the OTC. Plan on spending 6-7 hours weekly with assignments due every 2-3 days. We suggest logging in daily during the course.
