The Center for Advancing Faculty Excellence (CAFE) is a colleague-to-colleague teaching and learning center that promotes excellence and innovation in teaching, research, creative activity and engagement in an atmosphere of collegiality. CAFE offers workshops, events and other assistance to faculty on all five UAA campuses.
In addition to the series of workshops and presentations CAFE hosts for the UAA Faculty, in partnership with the UAAPDA, CAFE has hosted a number of workshops specifically for postdoctoral researchers and/or graduate students. Some recent topics have included design of ePortfolios, active learning pedagogy, and creating an inclusive classroom. Topics for these sessions are decided by the postdocs and are geared at addressing the career development needs of the group.
