Collaborative Partnerships for Providing Professional Development
The CTL uses a collaborative process to develop the college's professional development program and has streamlined the processes that are used to plan, coordinate and implement professional development activities and learning opportunities that are made available to all Moraine Valley faculty and staff. Four committees, comprised of individuals from across the campus, serve as liaisons representing the needs of the group that they each represent. They provide feedback and input about processes used to deliver professional development opportunities as well as topics for future workshops.  This process helps to create meaningful platforms where teaching and learning can be inspired.

Professional Development "Prize Patrol" Expresses Appreciation to Workshop Participants
Members of the Center for Teaching and Learning's Training Steering Team made surprise visits to randomly selected professional development workshops to thank the workshop facilitators and participants. At the beginning of the workshop, the "prize patrol" made a grand entrance with balloons and small tokens of appreciation for everyone in attendance. The team, comprising Misha Turner, assistant dean of the Center for Teaching and Learning, Kristine Christensen, director of faculty development and associate professor of Information Management Systems, and Pamela Haney, assistant dean of Academic initiatives and Accountability, randomly selected three fall workshops to visit and were so happy with the response that they decided to continue the activity every semester.
