Trainers, Liaisons & Affiliates

ATLE Certified trainers

In recognition of our role serving the campus community as experts in presentations and workshops, ATLE has developed a program to certify participants once they have been trained by ATLE on workshop design, development, and delivery. This program is open to faculty, graduate students, adjuncts, and university staff.

The program consists of attending a kick-off workshop (announced to the ATLE listserv) that introduces the basics of workshop design, and then working individually with ATLE to develop a unique workshop of your choosing that matches our design specifications. Participants are then issued a certificate in recognition.

Faculty Liaisons

The Academy for Teaching and Learning Excellence recognizes faculty members who wish to serve as a communication bridge between their home departments/schools and ATLE. We urge all departments/schools to nominate a Faculty Liaison, who would be asked to fulfill the following commitments:

  • Join the ATLE listserv and forward relevant announcements to colleagues
  • Keep ATLE apprised of any department-specific needs with which ATLE can assist
  • Review applications for the annual TA Awards (participation is voluntary)

The total commitment for the year is only a few hours, and this service to the University is recognized by a certificate from ATLE at the conclusion of the academic year.
