It’s About Engagement

Faculty Development Services Offered by CETL Scholarly Teaching 

CETL Scholarly Teaching is committed to promoting “research-based pedagogies that foster student academic engagement, learning, and success … [to] cultivate a data-driven campus-wide culture of ongoing academic program enhancement.” Our programming plan for the It’s About Engagement initiative is designed to boost and expand existing faculty capacity supporting undergraduate research, service learning, and co-ops/internships.




  • Faculty design and deliver high quality courses which promote student engagement, learning, and success through the AAC&U High Impact Practices  (HIPs) of
    • (1) undergraduate research,
    • (2) Internships/co-ops, and
    • (3) service-learning. 
  • Faculty have ample opportunity to participate in CETL Scholarly Teaching programming that specifically supports the It’s About Engagement Quality Enhancement Plan via access to online resources, university-wide and unit-specific face-to-face events, and individual consultations.   



Intended Outcomes: Faculty will be able to… 

  • access CETL resources online and in-person to support their continued development. 
    apply the backward design process to incorporate HIPS for engagement of students in the learning process within their courses. 
  • design HIP learning tasks/activities including reflective assignments for undergraduate research, service-learning, and internships/co-ops that constructively align within a course.
