Welcome to Embry-Riddle's Prescott Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence (CTLE). CTLE is dedicated to providing faculty with the information, resources, training, and support essential for success in today's climate of higher education.
CTLE Spring 2022 Programs
The very popular Mid-semester Feedback program is back! Be sure to submit a request early in the semester via the webform so that CTLE can accommodate your request. Quick overview: CTLE personnel will come to your class to obtain anonymous student feedback on what is working in your course and what could be improved. CTLE staff will sit down with you afterward to discuss the results. This is a great way to show you are engaging with teaching improvements and student support, both of which are part of the annual review process for faculty and instructors. Apply Now!
The Faculty and Staff Learning Communities (FSLCs) are launching! The following seven groups are starting to meet and are open to your participation: i)Active-learning in the classroom; ii)Diversity, equity, and inclusion; iii)Gamification, Game-based assessment, Games in the classroom; iv)Open Educational Resources (OER); v)Student-faculty research; vi)Team-Based Learning, Team/Group work in the classroom; and vii)Technology in the classroom. Each active group may access funding to support the discussions and work of the community. If you would like to participate in one or more of these learning communities or want more details about the program, please email the CTLE Director directly (Joshua Caulkins) and we will put you in touch with the group(s).
We have a CTLE Book Group! We will be reading “Relationship Rich Education” by Peter Felton and Leo Lambert this semester and the book will be provided to participants at no cost. We will meet four times (every 3-4 weeks) this semester to engage with the reading which includes a virtual discussion with one of the authors! The Book Group is closed at this time but please sign up in August for the Fall 2022 Book Group (send book ideas to Joshua Caulkins).

The CTLE is Here for You
No matter what stage of your teaching career you find yourself, CTLE programming is designed to "meet faculty where they are at." That is, CTLE is here to assist first-time instructors, as well as early-career, mid-career, and late-career colleagues since research shows faculty needs change throughout each of the career stages.
Working together, learning from each other, and implementing the most effective teaching strategies known to increase and improve the depths of student learning will elevate Embry-Riddle's Prescott Campus to admirable heights.
We look forward to our imminent ascent towards campus-wide teaching and learning excellence.
