There is little argument that today’s students learn differently. It is the responsibility of CELT to understand today’s learners and provide campus educators with innovative and useful pedagogical strategies to help support student learning.
The CELT team provides guidance and support in fostering engaged, inclusive, and continuous learning through learning opportunities, events, technological innovations, resources and support that encourage learning-centered education.
Ultimately, we hope our services assist in the creation of meaningful learning experiences for every HSU student.

Services offered by CELT
CELT offers a variety of services and resources to assist you in enhancing student learning. We offer face-to-face workshop or seminars, online courses or workshops/webinars, brown bag discussions, Faculty Learning Communities, formative feedback on instruction and courses, and individual consultations and works collaboratively with the Faculty Development Committee to promote, support and guide campus-wide improvements in learning and teaching.
CELT is dedicated to providing campus educators with opportunities to reflect upon and improve their instruction for formative purposes, without risk of evaluation or censure. Therefore:
- Gather and prepare feedback (videotape, observation, reviewing online communications, etc.) about instruction and/or a course only upon the request of the instructor,
- keep confidential the identity of clients, as well as their professional observations, interactions, or conclusions related to specific clients or cases; Clients may give permission to CELT to share their experiences with other clients for the purposes of learning.
- store and dispose of records in a safe way; and comply with institutional, state, and federal regulations about storing and ownership of records; and
- provide written verification of participation listing the type(s) of activity, date(s) and CELT consultant(s). Such “thank you letters” and “certificates of participation” may be included in tenure and promotion files or used as evidence of professional development.

The New Faculty Mentoring Program (NFMP) is a voluntary program through which experienced faculty at Humboldt State University (HSU) knowledgeable about the campus and academic life are matched with new faculty to orient them to HSU, inform them about campus support services, and assist them in the early stages of their academic careers at HSU. This program is not meant to be a substitute for existing mentoring programs at the department level but can be a supplement to such programs.

“Mid-semester evaluations”: http://www.humboldt.edu/celt/midsem/ are available to provide professional and objective feedback about your classroom approach and instruction. They are completely confidential and separate from retention and tenure, take 20-30 minutes of class time and allow you over six weeks to make the desired changes. Mid-semester evaluations are also beneficial in that they empower students by giving them a voice in their education.
