What We Can Do for You

The core of our mission is to partner with departments and faculty to support student learning. We offer a variety of programs to advance academic innovation initiatives on campus:

  • Department and Faculty Innovation Grants: Innovation grants are provided to faculty and departments to experiment and test new pedagogical techniques and models.
  • Teaching Workshops and Presentations: These are informal discussions that highlight and showcase teaching practices across campus.  Please refer to CETL Events 2023/24 Academic Year (302KB) and see our Canvas site for a full list, including presentations not hosted by CETL.
  • Annual Teaching and Learning Symposium: This annual event showcases department and faculty teaching innovations. 
  • Online and Hybrid Education: The Center works with faculty and departments to support the development of online/hybrid courses and programs.
