Specific series of themed programs open to all faculty, where the Center director, faculty, and/or external speakers lead discussions on topics relevant to classroom teaching (e.g. Inclusive Teaching & Excellence series).
Each semester, a series of programs on how faculty use various forms of instructional technology is developed by Instructional Technology Services and is jointly sponsored by the Center. The series, called Teach and Tech, is listed in the Center calendar. Additional partnerships on programming occur between the Center and the Library. Occasional programs are also held throughout the term on specific topics as requested by the faculty and departments. The Center also offers Faculty Writing Retreats in partnership with the Director of Sponsored Research. See the Center calendar for more information.
