Focus on Teaching – April 2018

As the winter semester comes to an end and spring finally arrives, you may have some time and space to reflect on your teaching practice and plan some professional development. CELT has you covered with half day and multi-day workshops during Instructional Development Weeks, Instructional Skills Workshops, engaging Speakers and Promotion and Tenure Workshops.

There is definitely something for everyone in the upcoming months, so check out the schedule, register, and plan to connect with like-minded colleagues during a CELT event this spring.
