Teaching Roundtable Sessions

The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) is delighted to announce the launch of a series of Teaching Roundtable Sessions—opportunities for teaching faculty to get together in an informal setting to learn about new ideas for effective teaching (and learning!). Each session will have a speaker, followed by a space for faculty to engage with one another and share ideas. Recent Roundtables have included:

  • Backward Design
  • Universal Design Principles
  • Classroom Techniques that Support Student Engagement with Graphical Representations

Please let us know if there is a particular topic pertaining to teaching and learning that you would like a Roundtable to address.
