Enhance Your Teaching

The Center for Teaching, Research, and Leadership (CTRL) organizes faculty conferences and events on teaching and learning, and provides hands-on workshops as well as individual faculty consultations on pedagogy and instructional technology.

The CTLR offers a number of teaching resources, such as the Technology in the Classroom workshops, which discuss useful tech tools for teaching; the Open American program, an initiative to encourage the use of Open Educational Resources; the Ten Take-Aways, a collection of teaching strategies; and individualized pedagogical consultations.

The Online Learning Group's goal is to help faculty become fully equipped to meet the needs of students, whether in traditional face-to-face courses, hybrid, or fully online.
