The IUP Reflective Practice Project

  • Reflective Practice Project

    Reflective Practice is a project sponsored by IUP’s Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) to support faculty and encourage reflective and effective teaching. Each year, Reflective Practice offers monthly large group meetings  to explore teaching strategies or other topics related to the teaching process, encourages the development of small peer groups or “teaching circles” in which a common topic or theme is explored, and sponsors Saturday and mini workshops presented by experts in specific areas of teaching and learning. A short description of each meeting or workshop is provided on the CTE website.

    Membership in Reflective Practice at the Active or Active Plus levels entitles faculty members to a certificate of recognition. No need to sign up (so don’t worry about returning a form); just be sure to sign in at events. We look forward to seeing you there!
