CTE Knights Certificates

Earn points for taking part in professional development activities and applying the content to your classes.

The CTE Knights Certificates recognize faculty participation in, and application of, a variety of professional development activities. To earn the CTE Knight: Gold Level Certificate, faculty must accumulate 70 points in an academic year and have presented in at least one. To earn the CTE Knight: Green Level Certificate, faculty must collect 35 points in an academic year. Certificates are awarded at Spring Symposium in May, and the Leaderboard will reset after that.

The certificates will recognize participation in a variety of teaching- and learning-related activities, application of sound pedagogical strategies to their classes, and demonstrate a commitment to promote student learning. They are designed to incentivize participation in CCRI events that enhance teaching and learning and promote community, collaboration, and respect among faculty.

Participating in a professional development opportunity outside of CCRI, such as reading a book or scholarly article on your own, attending a conference related to teaching or your field, or participating in a webinar on teaching practices, can still earn you points! Just fill out an Implementation Plan on what you learned and how you plan to use it in your classroom for 4 CTE Knights Points.
