Teaching and Learning Resources
CETL supports all faculty and instructional academic staff from all disciplines and career stages in the development of inclusive, student-centered environments. We encourage evidence-based teaching and assessment strategies with the goal of actively engaging students in their own learning.
CETL staff curate resources that provide the most up-to-date information for your teaching needs. We encourage you to consider these options when deciding how we can best assist you.
1. Contact CETL@uwec.edu for an in-person or virtual consultation to focus on your specific situation and hear how others in the teaching community are thinking about your topic. We can answer your question or offer options for you to consider that work for you and your students.
2. Check out the Innovations page for information new to you, new to some, or new to all of us.
3. Take a Teaching Boost course. These online, asynchronous courses are designed to be completed in 2-4 hours. A certificate is awarded upon completion of each course.
