Seminars and Institutes for Faculty

Semester-long seminar programs engage faculty in a supportive community of practice through a series of connected modules, workshops, and discussion groups on teaching and learning topics.

Multi-day institutes provide an opportunity for faculty to develop new teaching approaches, applications, and skills with hands-on guidance from CTL staff in an immersive, supportive environment.
