Consultations on Curricular and Educational Initiatives
CEI works with all levels of academic leadership systemwide — chancellors, deans, chairs, heads, and program directors — to support substantial pedagogical and curricular initiatives at the campus, college, department or program level. Our expertise ranges from faculty and graduate student professional development to establishing a peer review of teaching system to curriculum mapping and revision for accreditation. We provide expertise on diversity in the curriculum and inclusive pedagogical practices. CEI can bring our faculty development programs to your department, college, or campus or work with you to design programming that meets your specific academic goals and faculty needs.
CEI is a centrally funded unit, so there is no additional cost to you regardless of the level of engagement you seek. We frequently provide one or more consultations at the start of an initiative to help academic leaders shape and plan their effort. We regularly assist in the facilitation and delivery of faculty development that fits into a larger educational initiative. In some cases, a CEI team member becomes a professional partner to an academic unit in a one-to-three year collaboration to assist in the design, implementation, and assessment of an educational initiative.
