For several of its programs, the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning is beginning to offer workshops that are delivered fully online for participants.
Currently, we offer the following virtual workshops:
Self-Enrolling CETL Online Workshops
Our “self-enrolled” workshop format is designed to enable you to access CETL teaching and learning resources and workshop materials 24/7! Each workshop embeds multiple examples, research-based learning principles, and practices, and opportunities for you to begin applying the concepts and practices to your own course.
Each workshop may include a voice-over PowerPoint, handouts or a booklet, templates, or links to video clips or website materials.
We are always available to meet with you individually in person, via email, phone, or other programs to help you use these materials to meet your course needs.
CETL Self-enrollment Workshops Currently Available on Canvas
We are in the process of providing all materials in Canvas for each workshop listed below. The Canvas workshop modules are under completion weekly. Please check back for additional materials and modules. Please contact CETL if you need materials not listed below at: email@example.com

Online and Blended Teaching Program: Online/Self-Paced
Like its blended version, this fully-online, self-paced program focuses on helping you redesign your courses for the online or blended format using pedagogically effective methods and practices.
All activities are asynchronous (not in real time) and will be facilitated through our D2L course site. In the program, you will read articles, watch presentations, and complete activities, all at your own pace. While we will provide checkpoints throughout the program to help you stay on track, you can work through the materials when it is convenient for you.
You will receive an email from your assigned CETL mentor every week during the program for support and once after the completion of the program to see if you have further questions regarding your course redesign.
