Center for Teaching Excellence



CTE invites applications for two $5000 grants to full-time faculty members. The CTE Teaching Excellence Grant will support research projects to make teaching and learning more excellent. This area of research is known as the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SOTL) and is conducted in a broad range of academic fields.

Disaggregated Data Requests

In February 2022, I (Rachel) was able to see my course data for General Psychology (a course I have taught many times here at CCRI) disaggregated by race and ethnicity. The results were surprising and difficult for me to face. Despite that, I’m very glad that I did it, and I’m looking forward to trying some new strategies in my courses to try to close the equity gaps I found.

If you’d like to check out your own course data, request a meeting here to get started.

This is a confidential process and is for your professional development only. Results are not shared with chairs, deans, or the VPAA.
