We develop a variety of initiatives in collaboration with partners at Northwestern and other institutions. The list below describes our key partnerships.
Center for Education in Medicine and Feinberg Academy of Medical Educators (FAME)
The Center for Education in Medicine is home to the Feinberg Academy of Medical Educators (FAME) and related educational research and faculty development efforts at Northwestern's Feinberg School of Medicine. Check the Center's course listings for upcoming events. The Searle Center collaborates with the Center and with FAME on faculty development workshops and in the Searle Fellows program.
Collaborative Learning and Integrated Mentoring in the Biosciences (CLIMB)
The CLIMB program is a professional development program for bioscience PhD students. Participants develop advanced skills for collaborating, communicating, and conducting research across disciplines. The Searle Center evaluates the CLIMB program by measuring the impact of the program on students' research self-efficacy, research skills, and career plans.
Faculty Support Services - NUIT
A department within NUIT's Academic & Research Technologies, Faculty Support Services supports Northwestern faculty in using technology effectively in their teaching. The Searle Center collaborates with Faculty Support Services on a number of programs and initiatives.
Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching, An-Najah National University
The Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT) at An-Najah National University, in Nablus, Palestine, seeks to impact teaching and learning at institutional, national, and international levels by facilitating the transition of the University to a learner-centered paradigm in teaching and research. The Director and Faculty Fellows of CELT are International Teaching Fellows at the Searle Center. This collaboration is part of the Palestinian Faculty Development Project, funded by a joint initiative among AMIDEAST (America-Mideast Education and Training Services, Inc.), the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Open Society Institute.
