Congratulations to the Class of 2017

College Teaching Certificate graduating class of 2017

The C.A.F.E. would like to congratulate the 2017 graduates of the College Teaching Certificate. We are excited to see these "green lights" stay passionate, driven and always looking towards what tomorrow can bring.

The 12 graduates completed the following five courses over their first two years as full-time faculty members at Durham College:

  • Teaching Methodologies
  • Curriculum Design and Development
  • Assessment and Evaluation
  • Diversity in Teaching and Learning
  • Professionalism and Scholarly Practice

All new Durham College faculty members start the five course College Teaching Certificate. Durham College offers this program to support new faculty in their transition from subject matter experts to professional educators. This shift requires faculty to learn many new skills, consider new theories, and think about their career skills in new ways.
