Center for Scholarship and Teaching

Founded in 2008, the Center for Scholarship and Teaching (CST) supports professional development opportunities for faculty, encouraging faculty efforts in improving pedagogy and conducting timely, sophisticated scholarship.

CST frequently collaborates with Academic Affairs, A.C. Buehler Library, the Assessment Board and the Faculty Development Committee to coordinate and determine professional development offerings.

Programs and Services

Throughout the academic year, CST offers a number of seminars, workshops and speakers to improve teaching and learning and to cultivate a culture of professional development on campus.

Moreover, CST provides an ever-growing catalog of videos in the Instructional Technology section of the Faculty Development Organization on Blackboard, which can be accessed via the myElmhurst Portal. The current list includes videos on Collaborate, Qualtrics and Browsers.
