Our Mission
We are committed to supporting all ranks of faculty in creating learner-centered curriculum and pedagogy through professional learning, instructional design, teaching resources, and innovative programs.

Our Goals
Engage all faculty in a scholarly approach to teaching and fostering a culture of inclusive excellence in teaching and learning. Become a hub for WSUTC faculty that provides information about teaching and learning resources, facilitates connections throughout the University’s teaching community, and connects faculty to opportunities for grants, scholarships, fellowships, and awards for excellence in teaching. Support student success by significantly impacting the pedagogy, scholarship, and collaboration of faculty at WSUTC.

Achieving Our Mission & Goals

The teaching workshops listed below focus on building the knowledge and skill of our faculty in areas of active learning, student engagement, technology, and teaching strategies. We will continue to create a space for faculty to discuss their teaching and learn from one another.
