Faculty Development

Faculty Development


The Faculty Development arm of the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL), led by Dr. Leslie Ortquist-Ahrens, offers resources and professional development opportunities for individuals and groups in two ways: 1) through direct services and 2) as a collaborative home for faculty colleagues who bring particular areas of experience, expertise, and perspective to the shared project of teaching and learning.  By serving directly and operating as an umbrella for coordinating and publicizing faculty-led activities, Faculty Development is able to foster a community of excellence among faculty in service and support of student learning. Much of the work of this unit of the CTL takes place through the following programs and opportunities, but it also manifests in a variety of more informal collaborations within and outside the CTL:

All CTL faculty development programs and services are confidentialvoluntary, and formative.
