Faculty members, both full and part-time, are encouraged to participate in the Delphi Center's many programs.These programs assist in the professional development of the faculty at UofL by providing valuable and leading-edge information to faculty on a variety of issues, from technology, to best practices in teaching and learning, to research and assessment.
Celebration of Teaching & Learning
Celebration is a one-day professional development opportunity that is held annually in early February. The conference is designed to foster teaching excellence at UofL by providing educators from across the university with evidence-based teaching strategies for improving student learning. The Delphi Center has been sponsoring the conference for ten years and past keynote speakers include Ken Bain, Stephen Brookfield, Mark Taylor, and Cynthia Selfe.
Delphi U is designed to give faculty the tools and principles they need to create effective, interactive and stimulating online courses. Individuals leave Delphi U with a head start on creating or redesigning an online course and the skills required for continuing their work after the workshop. In-person sessions are offered in the spring, and online sessions are offered throughout the year.
Course Design Institute
Course Design Institute is a three-day program that gives faculty the opportunity to transform or (re)design your course with a student-centered focus. Previous facilitators include Dee Fink, Deandra Little, and Michael Palmer. Learn more about the institute.
