Kennesaw State University


Due to the forecast for inclement weather, Kennesaw State University has canceled classes on Saturday morning, which means that we cannot hold Saturday's sessions for the Research on Teaching and Learning Summit.

We will be providing all participants who paid for this year's Summit a discounted rate of $100 to attend the October 2-3, 2015 Summit, which is a $60 discount on the $160 registration fee.


CETL and Kennesaw State University have won the bid to host ICED in 2018.
ICED, The International Consortium for Educational Development, promotes educational and academic development in higher education world-wide. ICED is a network whose members are themselves national organisations or networks concerned with promoting good practice in higher education.

One hundred and sixty-four students presented oral and poster projects at the 19th annual Symposium of Student Scholars & Undergraduate Research Reception and set a new bar of academic excellence. Some students presented multiple projects this year, a growing trend, while others have returned with new research work to showcase.

This year’s symposium attracted projects from Bagwell College of Education, Coles College of Business, College of Humanities and Social Sciences, College of Science and Mathematics, College of the Arts and WellStar College of Health and Human Services.

The Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity Newsletter features stories from faculty and students that performed research and creative activity at Kennesaw State University, as well as information about upcoming research events.

Two Web directories maintained by KSU's Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) were featured in a July 8, 2013 article in Teaching and Learning in Higher Ed, an online blog devoted to the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL). The two directories, curated by Dr. Thomas Pusateri, CETL Associate Director for SoTL, provide extensive lists of SoTL conferences and journals, both of which are searchable by academic discipline and topic in higher education. The feature article noted that these directories are popular resources for college teachers and faculty developers.

In late June, the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) at KSU hosted the 8th Institute for New Faculty Developers, for the second time. Over 100 faculty developers from seven countries, who work in centers of teaching and learning, attended the conference. The institute is designed to equip newcomers to the field with the knowledge and skills they need to thrive. Participants included new directors, associate or assistant directors, instructional designers, faculty fellows, as well as faculty who volunteer their time.

On May 21st and 22nd CETL held its first Teaching Academy for Part-Time Faculty. The Academy included 17 faculty members, chosen by their applications, to two days of interactive sessions introducing them to research on student learning, information processing and skill development.
Some of the topics included were: principles of learning, course design, learning-centered instructional strategies, assessments that measure and extend learning, conflict management in the classroom, motivating students, academic integrity and responding to student diversity.
