The Office of Academic Affairs and the Center for Teaching and Learning congratulates Jamie Buffington-Adams, assistant dean for the School of Education and assistant professor, for earning a Quality Matters Certification for her online course, Education of the Socially and Emotionally Disturbed (EDUC-K343). Her course is the first at Indiana University East to earn official Quality Matters certification.
Stephanie Whitehead has been appointed the new director of the Center for Teaching and Learning.
As director, Whitehead will provide leadership in best teaching practices to support effective student learning for all modes of instructional delivery. She will work with and supervise the CTL staff in developing and delivering faculty development opportunities for both full-time and adjunct faculty and teaching staff about best practices related to pedagogy, learning and assessment.

Indiana University East will host the 12 Pastellists art exhibit July 27-September 18 in The Gallery, located in Whitewater Hall.
Trudi Weyermann, dean of Distance Education and associate vice chancellor for Teaching and Learning, said the certificate is the next logical step for IU East because the university currently offers nine online degree completion programs with over 400 online courses, about 150 taught every semester.
