Personalized Professional Development: Your Invitation to Be Curious
At the Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence, we believe that professional development should be practical, convenient, and inspiring. We’ve done the research, considered the options, and, most importantly, listened to our faculty. As educators, your needs, motivations, and interests vary, so your professional development options should too. Our CTLs are opportunities to explore innovative teaching practices, learn more about evidence-informed instructional strategies, and try out the latest educational technologies – all at your own pace.
CTLs are offered throughout the year, and registration occurs each semester. Most courses take participants about an hour to complete. To register for any of the offerings, complete the CTL Registration. Even though the CTLs are self-paced, each course has a CTLE facilitator to help guide you through the process and to answer any questions you may have as you work through the material. Upon completion of CTLs, participants are awarded digital badges and points on the Faculty Leaderboard.
