The Excellence in Teaching Committee will encourage, develop, and support professional enrichment opportunities for faculty at Lakeland Community College. The committee will continually review relevant research, trends, and issues and conduct activities that will promote quality teaching and learning.
Each semester the Excellence in Teaching Committee sponsors several lecture luncheons. The purpose of the lecture luncheon program is to provide a forum for sharing ideas and information that contribute to faculty development and excellence in teaching at Lakeland. If there are topics you would like to hear about, or if you’d like to present on a subject, please contact the chair of the Excellence in Teaching Committee.
The Excellence in Teaching Award is designed to recognize two outstanding full-time and two outstanding part-time Lakeland Community College faculty members each year.
