Learning Communities

CTEL learning communities are ongoing discussion groups designed to promote thinking and discussion around a specific topic. Each semester, CTEL will identify several areas of focus based on cohorts, current trends in higher education, university goals and expectations, and faculty/staff interests and suggestions. Additional topics of interest can be added by contacting CTEL. Once convened, each learning community will be responsible for appointing a facilitator and establishing a meeting schedule and location. Bradley faculty and professional staff may participate in as many learning communities as they wish.

Following are CTEL’s learning community topics for the Fall 2014 semester:

  • Classroom Strategies for Active Learning
