History

The Palmetto Teaching and Learning Institute began May 2006. The committee met monthly for the first two semesters to research, discuss, and create the Palmetto Teaching and Learning Institute initiative.

With their ratified mission and creation of modules to promote, "inspire, and enable faculty to develop teaching potential and enhance classroom effectiveness" PTLI began its services with guest speaker Dr. Robb Sherfield, in January 2007.

Modules to contribute PTLI's mission include Workshops, Lunch and Learn, Reading After Hours, Popcorn and a Movie, and Teaching Circles. Further, they provide "Technology Tips" to introduce methodologies utilized effectively by other instructors.

Instructors participating in the modules offered by PTLI become eligible for the Palmetto Teaching and Learning Institute Teaching Excellence Award for Commitment and Dedication to Student Learning.

The Palmetto Teaching and Learning Institute website, www.ptli.org, shall serve as a portal for services and a valuable resource in ennobling PTLI members.
