Teaching and Learning

Our goal is to empower teachers to be successful by developing a model for educational support that takes into account the needs of all teaching sites and teachers at all career stages.

  • building instructional skills for face-to-face and flexible delivery classes
  • developing and redesigning courses
  • developing and reviewing programs 
  • and selecting and adopting useful educational technologies

If you have questions about which session is best suited to your needs, if you’d like one-on-one support, or if you have a group of instructors who would like us to offer a specific session, please email our Teaching and Learning staff.
