Certificate recipients report high levels of satisfaction with the program. One-hundred percent of recipients who responded to the program evaluation survey since the fall of 2014 “strongly agree” or “agree” that they would recommend the program to colleagues. In their comments, recipients commented that through participating in the program they gained:
- Knowledge of best practices
- New perspectives on teaching
- Increased self-awareness
- Increased confidence in their teaching abilities
- Increased job satisfaction
In the video below, three program participants reflect on their reasons for joining the program, which range from feeling burnt out after many years of teaching, preparing for a future teaching career, and connecting to a community of fellow teachers.
In this next video, two DePaul faculty discuss the value of attending workshops, discovering new best practices, and working with colleagues in other disciplines to work through teaching challenges.
