Monday Morning Mentor Group

Online  teaching strategy videos released every Monday - Join us for coffee/tea & discussion or watch on your own! We meet most Monday mornings during fall, winter, and spring in Haggard Hall 154 (Faculty Drop-in Center).

Monday Morning Mentor from Magna Publications is a 20-minute video series provided to WWU faculty compliments of the Center for Instructional Innovation and Extended Education. Each Monday, a new video link is made available and accessible for 7 days. Even if you cannot join us, you can watch the videos on your own. Details available on our Canvas Monday Morning Mentor site (click Join this Course)

Summer Grant

In conjunction with the Provost, the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education, and ATUS, the Center for Instructional Innovation and Assessment (CIIA) is pleased to congratulate the recipients of the 2018 Faculty Development Summer Grant. With department funding for some participants, we were able to expand the number of participants to 17! These instructors attended a 5-day workshop last June and have continued to work with the CIIA and ATUS to development their course enhancements during the summer and into the academic year.


We hope you'll make room in your schedule for our professional development opportunities. TLT Professional Development (monthly, see events) is an ongoing collaboration among CIIA/Academic Technology colleagues to engage faculty in implementing and evaluating new technologies for teaching. This has been set up as a "public" Canvas course which does not require login to access the site. Please explore this collection of our explorations into teaching with technologies!



"We cannot create genuine communities of practice for students until we allow faculty to participate too… only if the teachers are learners too, and if they can be seen to be learners, can they genuinely model deep learning for the apprentice learners in the community."

John Tagg, The Learning Paradigm College, 2003
