Center for Excellence in Teaching & Learning

We help faculty and educators become the best teacher, no matter how many years of experience.

We ensure faculty success, by working with faculty to ensure student success.

Our goal is to enhance excellence in undergraduate and graduate education through the development of faculty committed to implementing and advancing effective teaching practices. We promote university teaching that helps students learn, persist, succeed, and ultimately graduate.  With a strong commitment to honoring the interconnectedness of teaching and learning, we work to foster the use of evidence-based educational strategies that have been demonstrated to foster learning and improve academic outcomes for students.

Resources designed to help faculty in their classroom preparations for after the national election. We invite you to keep these resources handy as students--many of whom may be voting for the first time--may seek your guidance and pedagogical engagement. We know this year has been full of unrest, and these resources will help you in prevalent current day issues to learn more visit our page about Teaching in Tumultuous Times.

The Association of College and University Educators (ACUE) and the University of Colorado Denver, partner to provide our faculty with the best resource for teaching their students and helping students succeed. In every ACUE course, faculty learn about and implement the teaching practices that promote student engagement, persistence, and academic success (ACUE, 2020). We now have a micro-credential and a full year-long credential course!
