CETL staff provide a number of services for faculty and instructors at UWM.

Consultations: We will meet with UWM faculty and instructors members upon request for a private consultation about teaching and/or individual course design. All meetings and materials are confidential, formative, and developmental, not part of university faculty review processes.In an individual consultation, CIPD staff members offer collegial support informed by research on learning and teaching. We will not tell you how to teach, but we will ask questions and explore possibilities so that you can meet your own teaching and learning goals.

Consultations typically focus on areas such as:

  • assessing and enhancing a current course
  • creating a new course or revising an existing course, assignment, or syllabus
  • understanding and measuring what students are learning • exploring new pedagogical techniques or different approaches to class or course design
  • interpreting comments and numerical results from Student Evaluation of Teaching forms.

Desire2Learn and Learning Technologies: In addition, CETL provides a wide range of support for UWM faculty and instructors who use Desire2Learn (D2L), the campus-wide course management system, and supported learning technologies.  CETL offers training workshops for gaining an introductory knowledge of D2L and supported technologies and maintains extensive web-based resources that provides self-guided help.
