Each semester, CETL offers several workshops that focus on different teaching approaches and emerging practices. Workshops are led by faculty and administrators from across the college (and external facilitators, on occasion) and provide faculty with opportunities to learn about different teaching strategies to try out and to share their successes and challenges with one another.

Registering for Workshops
To register for CETL content-workshops (those that have a course code) and for Assessment Diaries, go to the accessECC Portal, and on the "Self-Service Menu" box, select "Continuing Ed Registration" -> "Continuing Ed Registration" -> "Register and Pay for Continuing Education Classes." In the "Course Code Number" box, enter the specific course code provided in the semester CETL booklet or search "CFD" to bring up all courses. Select the workshops you'd like to register for and click "Submit." From there, follow the commands to finish registering. All courses are free of charge.
Registering ahead of time through accessECC ensures that the course shows up on your transcript and helps for logistical preparations.
Submitting a Workshop Topic
To suggest a topic for a workshop, contact Tyler Roeger at firstname.lastname@example.org or (847) 214-7696. There is also a CETL Workshop Proposal Form (fillable PDF version or Word version) that can be used to provide more detail or to request that an already-planned workshop or series of workshops receive lane credit through CETL.
Receiving Lane Movement Credit for CETL Workshops
Lane movement, as stipulated by the ECCFA contract and describd in the Faculty Development Handbook, is the process by which faculty advance in salary level, based on credentials and acquired lane movement credits. CETL's Content-Based Workshops are automatically pre-approved for lane movement. As defined in the Faculty Development Handbook, the number of CFD Workshop Clock Hours for the Year to be applied towards lane movement from CETL is equal to the number of CETL workshop clock hours divided by 24. For instance, a single two-hour CETL workshop would equal 2/24 CFD Workshop Clock Hours to be applied toward lane movement. For more information, consult the Faculty Development Handbook.
