Collected Essays on Learning and Teaching
Foreword Foreword The Editors of Collected Essays on Learning and Teaching (CELT) are pleased to present Volume II of this successful, innovative electronic publication associated with the annual conference of the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE). Volume II features a remarkable 36 peer-reviewed essays, appearing after an extensive process of submission, revision, and editing. The idea for CELT dates back to the 2005 STLHE conference hosted by the University of
... University of Prince Edward Island. From the beginning, the intent has been to encourage conference presenters to put the essence of their workshops and concurrent, round table, and poster sessions in essay form for a wide readership interested in teaching improvement practices in higher education. Once the CELT structure and format were established, the editors invited those who presented at the 2007 conference at the University of Alberta to submit to Volume I. The invitation resulted in the submission of 35 manuscripts, of which 25 appeared under the theme of "Evolving Scholarship." A CD of the first volume was distributed to the 430 participants at the STLHE conference hosted by the University of Windsor in June 2008, and further copies went out to the Society's institutional members. The entire first volume of CELT can now be accessed on the STHLE website.
