As part of the campus ongoing preparation for re-accreditation, the Provost’s Office and the Center for Instructional and Professional Development (CIPD) hosted the first annual “Assessment Showcase” on Friday, March1, 2013, in the School of Architecture and Urban Planning (SARUP) from noon to 4pm–followed immediately by the UWM First Friday reception.
The Common Reading Experience strives to spark conversation about important social and moral issues. By asking an incoming class of freshmen to read the same book, students have a rare opportunity to share how it affected them and understand how and why someone else may have read it differently. The program also seeks to connect first-year students with faculty members from multiple disciplines around the university. During the Common Reading Experience, students have a chance to talk with professors and other members of the UWM community who come from a variety of different perspectives.

CIPD is committed to your development as an instructor and faculty member. These programs provide an extended opportunity to explore teaching and student learning in a systematic way, both on campus and through UW-System initiatives.
As part of the competencies approved by the Faculty Senate in May 2012, both the Quantitative Literacy (QL) and Oral and Written Communication (OWC) competencies will have an A and a B requirement. CIPD provides guidance to anyone seeking to develop or alter a course to meet this requirement.
The Basic Certificate of Professional Development in Teaching and Learning offers faculty and academic staff the opportunity to pursue a structured program of professional development.
In the spirit of continued learning and collaboration, CIPD offers workshops on teaching and learning designed for faculty, academic staff with teaching responsibilities, and teaching assistants.
