CTL offers a variety of concentrated programs designed to afford intensive professional development opportunities throughout the year. Additionally, CTL offers a variety of workshops, where topics are based on research-based best practices in the scholarship of teaching and learning. The direction of our programming often reflects particular questions and challenges identified by JU faculty. This video shows how faculty at JU have impacted the lives of students through teaching strategies, mentorship, and hands-on experiences.
How We Can Help
As a faculty member, you can request a classroom observation and/or a consultation on teaching pedagogy and classroom management to help unpack any issues. Our workshops offer practical ideas that faculty can then implement into their own courses as best fits their needs and teaching style. If you are a JU faculty member and would like more instructional resources or would like to host a workshop, click here for CTL's Blackboard.
We are committed to responding to the needs and interests of our faculty; if there is a particular subject or issue that you would like to see addressed, contact email@example.com.
