Focus on Student Learning Series

In an ongoing effort to support teachers and learners, the Center for Teaching and Learning coordinates many vibrant trainings to engage faculty in their work as instructors.  Focus on Student Learning (FoSL) series features monthly presentations by engaging leaders in the world of academic excellence, and mini-workshops guided by our very own professors who have introduced helpful and innovative teaching strategies. These are useful discussions that encourage creative approaches to both old and new ideas in teaching and learning.
