University of Kentucky – Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (CELT)
The University of Kentucky, like many universities, operates a Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (CELT). What is unique about CELT is that “it explores with faculty the ways in which technology can potentially transform our pedagogies in positive ways.” Rather than focusing on the tools themselves, this centre emphasizes pedagogy as a priority. The centre runs workshops, unconferences, and offers consultations in order to explore this. In addition to pedagogy, the centre works with faculty members in order to explore questions surrounding the use of technology and issues related to privacy, accessibility, privilege, and power. The centre is meant to empower faculty to make better decisions around technology, as it relates to how it can impact the student learning experience. The Centre makes the following statement:
“We want to use the tools to suit our and our students’ needs, not have the tools use us.”
The Centre provides the following services:
Services for New Faculty including the New Faculty Teaching Academy meant to ensure teaching success.
CELT is working to explore with faculty the ways in which technology can potentially transform our pedagogies in positive ways. They show faculty members that technology should always be in service of the pedagogy, and not the other way around.This is done through both workshops and conferences.
