Virtual Workshops

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.
