Each semester, the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning offers a full schedule of teaching and learning events.

Beginning in Fall 2021, you can attend all workshops either in-person or virtually! For any workshop where lunch is provided, this is exclusive to our in-person attendees.

All in-person offerings are subject to be moved to Zoom, following the current university COVID-19 protocol.

All workshops will be recorded and made available on the new CETL Faculty Development Hub. Click here if you would like more information or would like to request access to the Hub.
