Eric Carver, Professor, Health Information Management, Health Education Center Greetings SPC Faculty! As the new CETL Lead Faculty Associate, I’ve had a few questions about the direction of CETL over the next two years as the college is working through several initiatives that impact faculty, students, and staff. In short, I don’t know what the future holds; however, rest assured I will continue to uphold CETL’s mission which is:

“To support, recognize and reward faculty in the pursuit of excellence in teaching, learning and assessing to promote student success at SPC.”

I will be working with our CETL Board, Faculty Associates, and staff to uphold this mission through our goals of:

  • Providing a vision of teaching and learning at SPC
  • Developing and supporting a standard of excellence for college-wide pedagogical competencies
  • Encouraging faculty to continually strive for excellence in the teaching, learning and assessment process
  • Serving as an incubator for innovative teaching and learning strategies
  • Facilitating sharing and enhancing best practices
  • Providing mentoring opportunities and resources for all faculty

Although it may seem that we have tons of activities that pull us many directions, I will ensure that we continue to foster these goals and work with a collaborative spirit with all institutional resources to ensure our team of faculty are provided with great opportunities to enhance teaching and learning for our students. – Dr. Eric Carver
