***ABOUT THE CHUSS CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE IN RESEARCH, TEACHING AND LEARNING (CERTL)
Early this year, the College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHUSS) received a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation in New York to establish a CHUSS Centre of Excellence in Research, Teaching and Learning (CERTL). The Centre will help to equip and revitalize faculty, graduate teaching fellows, and graduate students in the College with skills in research on teaching and learning. The Centre will among other things:
- Offer opportunities for faculty to retool and learn from each other about the teaching of the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences in a university. This will be through an exploration of new pedagogies that foster critical thinking and enable senior faculty to provide orientation, mentoring, and instructional support to new and upcoming faculty
- Provide opportunities for renewal and growth among senior faculty in research and teaching in their respective disciplines
- Initiate and support a culture of recognition and reward for excellence in research, learning and teaching in the University
- Ensure that students in the Humanities, Arts and Humanistic Social Sciences disciplines and programs are properly grounded in the debates, methodologies and writing in their respective disciplines albeit emphasizing interdisciplinarity
