More than 30 time-intensive and short sessions, led by more than 25 faculty and WCU staff, in partnership with the Coulter Faculty Commons
The Summer Institute of Teaching and Learning has been hosted by the CFC and Academic Affairs for more than 15 years and this year Summer Institute of Teaching and Learning will be held at the A.K. Hinds University Center. The program has been created to correspond with needs expressed by faculty during the past two academic years. Our format, as last year, is that one should only sign up for the events that you intend to attend.
Below, you’ll find a brief listing of this years’ sessions, organized alphabetically, while full details of all sessions are available here. This year, all sessions are approximately one hour in length.

If you are not interested in team-based learning or service learning/community engagement, begin scanning the extended single sessions. It is possible to fit both those sessions into your schedule.
