The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) is going to make it easy for you to plan ahead and create a student-friendly course to promote student learning. In this short winter faculty preparation course, they will provide you with hands-on support from our CETL Instructional Designers including, 

  • Create an effective and inclusive syllabus to guide your students and your instruction
  • Refine your course learning objectives, align them to assessments and learning activities
  • Plan your semester with inclusion in mind
  • Connect, collaborate, and share ideas with other instructors
