Center for Teaching, Learning, & Outreach: Advisory Groups
As a Caltech Center serving Faculty, Students (Undergraduate and Graduate), and Staff in their various roles as instructors, teaching assistants, program coordinators, mentors, and tutors, regular input and feedback is essential. We work with several groups on a regular basis:
CTLO Faculty Advisory Committee:
Mike Brown (Chair), GPS
Marianne Bronner, BBE
Mitchio Okumura, CCE
Christopher Umans, EAS
Morgan Kousser, HSS
Elena Mantovan, PMA
Ryan Patterson, PMA
Graduate Student Committee: Caltech Project for Effective Teaching (CPET)
This Graduate Student Committee has been active since 2009; CPET runs a popular series of seminars aimed toward graduate students and postdocs, contributes to TA Orientation programs, and runs a peer reviewed “Certificate of Interest In College Teaching” program. CPET now serves as an inportant advisory group to the CTLO and is housed within the Center.
Undergraduate Committee: Academics and Research Committee (ARC)
This Undergraduate Committee, part of ASCIT, has a long history of active engagement with undergraduate education. The ARC Chair, Course Committee members, and the CTLO Director meet regularly, collaborating on projects and programs such as Course Ombudspeople and providing Undergraduate fedback on new programs, services, and projects.
The Center brings together two groups of staff from across the institute to provide support and obtain input:
(1) Offices supporting on-campus teaching (Hixon Writing Center, Libraries, Registrar, Undergraduate and Graduate Deans, Academic Media and Technologies, International Offices, General Counsel, Vice Provost);
(2) Educational Outreach Coordinators associated with various Divisions, Research Groups, and projects.
