Organizationally, the Technology and Learning Program (TLP) is moving under the leadership of AVP Wenshu Lee, and working closely with the newly developed unit of Faculty Development. TLP reports to Wenshu Lee, Associate Vice President for Faculty Affairs. The Interim Director of Faculty Development is Chico Professor, Zach Justus.
This move is a welcomed transition to working more closely with the Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT). We have worked together over the last 15 years, but it was from more disparate organizations. With all of us working closely with Chico’s faculty, and influencing and supporting Academy e-Learning over the last 7 years, it was a natural reorganization to make. We are happy to let you know about this change, and although we still reside in the basement of Meriam Library plans are underway to move us all into a more centralized location together. More about what all this means later, as time allows the transition to occur.
One thing we want to offer to faculty is a more flexible schedule for consultations with our Instructional Designers and more opportunities for workshops on weekends or later into the evening as your needs dictate. Please let us know how we can better serve you and our 21st century students.
