Welcome to the Center for Teaching Effectiveness. The Center was established by the Faculty Senate in 2001 to be a resource for classroom teachers through workshops, brown-bag seminars, and discussion. In addition to these activities, the Center provides orientation and professional development support to new faculty. Further, those who wish to enhance the quality of their teaching may make use of the instructional coaching services offered by the center.
