Register Here

This is the C-TEL end of the year event and is designed to be an interactive celebration of the successes in teaching and learning over the last academic year. C-TEL Small Grant Recipients will present lightning talks (5 min.) about their teaching and learning projects highlighting important “lessons learned” and suggesting resources for faculty and staff interested in implementing similar projects. Attendees will circulate around the tables and will end the session with 10-15 minutes to discuss and share ideas with others who are interested in the same topic.  We will award our Certificates in Teaching and Learning and announce faculty and staff who have been chosen to serve as C-TEL Teaching Fellows for 2015-2016.  The event will end with a celebratory reception of beer, wine, and hors d’ oeuvres.
