year. They offer a wonderful opportunity to work with colleagues from your own
department or across disciplines to enhance and improve your teaching.

the name of the Teaching Circle and the facilitator information.

This new procedure will
ensure that we have an accurate database of who the facilitators and members of
the various Teaching Circles are. It will also provide us with accurate department
and contact information as well as the correct spelling of everybody’s name. This
information will help expedite the processing of the certificates recognizing Active and Active Plus status in the Reflective Practice Project of the Center
of Teaching Excellence at the end of the academic year.
also remember that your Teaching Circle can apply for a CTE Mini-Grant for up
Circles can be established at any time during the academic year, but the
deadline for applying for a Mini-Grant is October
