Welcome to the Center for Teaching Effectiveness. The Center was established by the Faculty Senate in 2001 as a resource for faculty through workshops, brown-bag seminars, and discussions. In addition to these activities, the Center today provides faculty with professional development opportunities and instructional coaching for those who wish to enhance the quality of their teaching. The Center also offers travel awards to faculty presenting research on the scholarship on teaching and learning and recognizes faculty for outstanding teaching.
