Save the Dates for CTE Faculty Workshops in 2013-2014!

The CSU Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) offers a variety of workshops and discussions intended to help faculty at all levels of experience engage in professional development. A list of workshops for the coming academic year appears below; more information is provided prior to each session. As in previous years, we are coordinating our scheduling with a number of other units on campus in order to reduce the number of conflicts on the professional development schedule.

In addition to the regular schedule of topics and dates, special workshops can often be provided to interested groups of faculty upon request. If you would like to explore this option, please contact Dr. Kate Monaghan at 216-687-5509 or at c.monaghan@csuohio.edu . Also contact cte@csuohio.edu to register for any of the workshops.
