Welcome to the Website for the Collaborative for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL). The main focus of CETL activities is to support the development of faculty in the areas of teaching and facillitation of learning. CETL provides access to resources on innovative pedagogy, research on effective teaching techniques, effective use of technology to support learning, and provision of one-on-one consultation with faculty. The CETL is located in KHIC 237 in the area formerly known as the Faculty Commons. It is adjacent to the Faculty Technology Center where faculty have access to a variety of instructional technology hardware and software and multimedia equipment. An Instructional Technology staff member is available to provide personal assistance to faculty in the use of the equipment or to learn how to use specific instructional software. The CETL and Faculty Technology Center are staffed Friday during the day and are accessible 24/7 using your Purple Card key access. Stop in anytime to use the facilities, to chat, or just pick up a piece of chocolate. We are here to support you.
