Holistic Professional and Communal Development

CTE approaches personhood holistically with a view to understanding faculty and students as people balancing personal and academic demands. CTE wants faculty to feel like they belong and contribute to a community that values teaching excellence, collaboration and diversity.

Instructional Strategies and Course Design

CTE collaborates with instructors to implement sound instructional strategies focused on student learning by embracing evidence-based pedagogical ideas and a spirit of innovation. This approach includes, but is not limited to, creating well-designed courses and curriculum that incorporate strong learning-assessment strategies resulting in deep learning.
