Workshops

Workshops

The CTT and its partners provide opportunities to learn about specific pedagogical interventions, new technologies to support teaching, and to engage in lively discussions of effective pedagogy with colleagues from across the disciplines. We create workshops for the campus as a whole and also customize workshops for colleges and departments. Contact us for more information and check our calendar for upcoming workshops.
