The Center for Collaborative Teaching and Learning (CCTL) welcomes you to its inaugural event!

We invite the Wheaton College community to an interactive session (reception to follow) led by Peter Felten. Peter Felten is Professor of History and Executive Director of the Center for Engaged Learning at Elon University:

The Undergraduate Experience: What Matters Most for Student Success?

In The Undergraduate Experience, Peter Felten and his co-authors identify six core themes that matter most for student success: learning, relationships, expectations, alignment, improvement, and leadership. This interactive session explores the research that demonstrates why these themes are important not only for students but also for instructors and for institutional culture.

Peter Felten is a leader in educational development. His books include: The Undergraduate Experience: Focusing Institutions on What Matters Most (Jossey-Bass, 2016); Transforming Students: Fulfilling the Promise of Higher Education (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2014); and Engaging Students as Partners in Learning and Teaching (Jossey-Bass, 2014).

Everyone is welcome and encouraged!
