The Center for Teaching Excellence and Learning (C-TEL) seeks to promote excellence and innovation in teaching and enhance student learning at Washburn University and Washburn Tech.

We work collaboratively within the university community to develop and sustain a university culture that values and rewards teaching in all its forms and venues, respects and supports differences among learners, and creates enriched learning environments in which diverse students, faculty, and staff can excel.  We act as a resource for the university community by offering a wide array of research-based programs and services that support teaching.  We serve as a catalyst for university-wide dialogue that fosters a shared vision of teaching excellence and learning-centered education at Washburn and Washburn Tech.

Our First Year!

We are happy to roll out programing for our first year of operation.  Programing for each month of the 2014-2015 academic year will be organized around one of our Pillars. During each month we will host workshops, Wednesday Webinars, Mentor Mondays, speakers, and Teaching Circles.  We hope that you like what we have developed for you!
