Focus on Student Learning

In an ongoing effort to support teachers and learners, the Center for Teaching and Learning heads up many vibrant pedagogical endeavors.  We are proud to offer the “Focus on Student Learning” series (FOSL). The series features monthly presentations by engaging leaders in the world of academic excellence, and mini-workshops guided by 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.  Most importantly, the topics come from you!  Each semester we use your feedback to select information you want to hear about!  Please join us this semester!
