The CTL organizes three large-scale faculty development events, in August, January and May. Focused on a broad range of topics surrounding teaching, learning, instructional technology, and research, these events provide practical, useful strategies for instructors to use in their classrooms. Events are typically highly interactive, including a variety of options from which to choose in terms of speakers and topics.
Archives from past events are available.
Master Class Series I: Teaching with Canvas. This series of master classes is a series of 3 classes that provide you with the knowledge, experience, and confidence needed to design, develop, and teach courses effectively while using Canvas. It is highly encouraged for those teaching an online or blended course and extremely useful for those teaching face-to-face. The first of the 3 classes is the only class needed for the ACP requirement. If you want to be a Master Class Certified Graduate, attendance to all 3 classes is needed in addition to completing course requirements.
Teaching for Learning Series. This is a separate series of master classes that help you go further with your curriculum to ensure students are gaining mastery in your learning goals and are fully engaged in their own learning process. To be a certified graduate for this series, both classes need to be attended along with the completion of course requirements.
Webinars and face-to-face workshops are held throughout the year to further support teaching and learning. All of our upcoming workshops are listed on our current workshops page where you can RSVP for the workshops of your choice.
