Welcome to the Exchange — the newsletter for SPCC’s Center for Learning, Teaching, and Leadership (CTLL).  The Exchange will be published regularly throughout the Fall and Spring semesters. It will include timely information related to teaching strategies and resources, CTLL updates, and upcoming events of interest to educators and leaders.  Please visit our CTLL clearinghouse of resources!

Interested in delving deeper into topics crucial to South Piedmont's commitment to student success?  We are pleased to announce our new Faculty Fellowship opportunity!  In collaboration with the CTLL, Fellows will choose a topic, study best practices, network with professionals in the field, design a project or program, and share findings with faculty and staff.  Our application process will open later in May 2021.  Look for more information soon!

South Piedmont is going International!  Focusing on cultivating innovative international learning experiences and opportunities for all students, faculty, and staff, our goal is to support everyone in becoming responsible global citizens.  Check out the CTLL website to discover some of the amazing Global Opportunities we are offering including curriculum internationalization and virtual study abroad!


SPCC faculty and students are embracing HyFlex!  HyFlex, or Hybrid-Flexible, represents a model of instruction that maximizes student engagement and access to content in a multi-modal learning environment. Students can take greater responsibility for their education by attending classes that best fit their learning and scheduling needs.  Learn more in the Online Instruction HyFlex section of the CTLL website and keep an eye out for more updates including our Summer Hyflex Pilots!

Check out our latest Moodle training!  Six on-demand training modules have been custom-made for our SPCC instructors including topics such as creating a profile picture, new topic, discussion forum, assignment, quiz, and lesson activity.   Visit the Academic Technology page on the CTLL website to get started today.

Quick Tip:  When designing your next course, consider Backward Course Design.  Begin with the end in mind:  What would you like your students to get out of your course (course outcomes)?  When creating assignments, activities, and assessments, consider what constitutes evidence of how your students are aligning toward those goals.
