Welcome to the Center for Teaching and Learning's website


This year, the CTL will be offering month-long online workshops covering a range of topics (see below). These workshops allow participants to access the materials from home and on their own schedule. Readings, resources, and assignments for reflection will be a large component. Participants will exchange ideas and feedback with one another and will be invited to come together for discussion and reflection. 

Additionally, the CTL provides support through a Faculty in Residence program. Throughout the year, a few faculty are selected to showcase their skills and talents in order to help other develop best practices in instruction and student support. 

This year, I would like to welcome Angela Dorsey (Advising Faculty) and Christie Fierro (Communications Faculty) to the Center. Beginning in Oct, Christie will be educating and inspiring us all with talks on Open Education Resources and Open Pedagogy. During Winter, Angela will be working with faculty to identify and develop student support workshops, webinars, and video tutorials.
