Welcome to the CTL!

The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) offers support to full- and part-time faculty who want to

  • refine their teaching skills,
  • experiment with new instructional formats, and
  • apply educational technologies in their classes.
The CTL provides workshops, educational software training, resources, and individual consultations.

We offer advice, resources, and a forum for discussion to help faculty to provide students with the best education possible.

You can listen to this welcome message, too:
