Center for Teaching and Learning

The Center for Teaching and Learning facilitates excellence in classroom and online instruction and promotes scholarship of teaching and learning by providing professional development, tools, and other supporting services.

Open for Appointments and Remote Assistance

We have returned to Harden Hall, but to maintain social distancing we are continuing to do as much remote consulting as possible and are taking appointments for all face-to-face meetings.  Learn more about CTL appointments

Introducing Ally

Ally is an EduCat tool that helps address accessibility and universal design. It was added to EduCat between the Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 semesters in order to provide faculty with assistance in ensuring their courses are accessible and to provide students with alternative content formats to help meet their individual learning needs and preferences. Learn more about Ally.

Modified On-Campus Teaching Toolkit

Due to social distancing requirements, many face-to-face courses will not be able to have all students physically attend all class meetings. These courses will keep a face-to-face component, but their delivery will need to be modified. Faculty have various options for modifying their courses. We are gathering resources and links related to modified-on-campus courses on this page for easy access.  

Basic Distance Delivery Course Kit

This page provides introductory information about how you might conduct different types of activities when all instruction is moved to distance delivery. It also provides links to more detailed reference and instructional materials. 

Support and Consultation

Learn more about these services through the web site, make an appointment with your department's CTL liaison, or stop by the CTL to see us.


Professional Development

Throughout the year, the Center for Teaching and Learning offers opportunities for faculty to engage in professional development related to teaching. These include workshops and multi-day institutes on pedagogy and instructional technology, special events such as guest speakers, and ongoing programs such as Learning Circles, Faculty Learning Communities, the Online Teaching Fellows initiative, and the New Faculty Network. Register for upcoming events.
