Workshops, Symposium, & Events

The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) offers many opportunities for the advancement of evidence-based pedagogical approaches to support faculty, departments, and other units on campus. Join us during the academic year for workshops where our SVSU colleagues share their expertise and experience. In February, CETL hosts an annual Teaching and Learning Symposium that explores a single theme and showcases innovative teaching and scholarship from SVSU faculty. Apply for individual or department grants to support student learning, take one of CETL’s course development classes, or drop by for an individual consultation. We are here to draw the campus community together to share expertise, showcase innovative practices, and explore emerging pedagogical models. 



CETL runs workshops on teaching and learning topics throughout the year.  Please see our Canvas course and the University workshop registration for more information.
