Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s Worldwide RCTLE was established in 2005 under the advisement of the Faculty Senate. It was created to provide all ERAU-W faculty with a community to enhance scholarly teaching and learning. In 2010, the Worldwide center was renamed in order to commemorate Bruce A. Rothwell’s dedication to academic quality and ceaseless advocacy with regard to higher academic standards within the Worldwide Campus. When considering the renaming of the center, the Faculty Senate’s expectation was that the center would then be associated with a broad and deep commitment for serving all Worldwide Campus Faculty inclusively; thus, mirroring the person behind the name.
The vision of the Worldwide RCTLE is to inspire, empower, connect, and inform all Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Worldwide faculty and others regarding best practices in teaching and learning. We strive to foster a supportive community that encourages engagement in regular dialog with academic professionals who are an integral source of current strategies in teaching and learning, particularly in an online environment.
The Worldwide RCTLE’s mission is to empower faculty members in their pursuit of professional growth through diverse offerings for the universal goal of student success. RCTLE will research and continuously improve/innovate to ensure we are a source and model of the most accurate and current strategies in teaching and learning. We offer friendly and informed opportunities for faculty to reflect on their practice and increase student engagement and learning.
