Center for Advancing Teaching and Learning Through Research (CATLTR)
CATLTR was established to support the Northeastern University community in creating opportunities for lasting learning. To realize this goal, the Center takes a multi-pronged, research-based approach to working with faculty and administrators in the classroom, through departmental programs or university-wide initiatives. For more information please visit CATLTR.
CPS Instructional Onboarding
As part of the onboarding process, all new instructors at CPS are asked to complete a short self-paced course in Canvas as an introduction and overview of expectations and support, instructional preparation, facilitation of syllabus and LMS components, student engagement, assessment, feedback, and more.
Conversations on Diversity and Inclusion
A dialogue series sponsored through the Faculty Innovations in Diversity and Academic Excellence Grant awarded through the Office of Institutional Diversity and Inclusion at Northeastern University.
Faculty Academic Integrity Review (FAIR)
FAIR is an approximately one-hour training located within the CPS Instructional Onboarding that covers the prevalence of integrity violations such as plagiarism, unauthorized collaboration, and reuse, CPS’ required process for addressing potential academic integrity violations, as well as strategies and resources to help instructors prevent and identify potential violations in their classes.
Global Student Success Faculty and Staff Workshops
Global Student Success is constantly exploring ways to internationalize Northeastern’s campus through innovative services and collaborations. The GSS webinar series focuses on ways to better serve our international student populations. Visit the workshop page and scroll down to “archived webinars”.
