We believe all students deserve an extraordinary education and that faculty members play a critical role in their success. CETL supports faculty members in the use of evidence-based teaching practices that drive student engagement, retention, and learning.
Our workshops are centered on assisting faculty members to be the best educators they can be. From a semester-long Community of Practice to our 8-week ACUE micro-credentials, or our monthly Lunch & Learns - We have something for everyone. Our programs are designed to help you in your academic life as an educator, your day-to-day life, build campus community, and provide continued support throughout your time at CU Denver. We serve all faculty from all schools and colleges.

A Community of Practice provides opportunities for teachers to engage and discuss teaching and learning with other teachers on campus in an intimate and relatively informal setting. Communities of practice meet periodically throughout the academic year and are dedicated to exploring a specific dimension or element of teaching and learning. They are facilitated by our faculty fellows or faculty on campus who have some expertise in the topic area, and, over the course of the academic year, tend to evolve into mutually supportive forums where colleagues can troubleshoot, brainstorm, commiserate, and learn from one.
Lunch & Learn
Our Lunch & Learn series is designed to provide faculty with appetizing opportunities to learn about innovations and best practices and discover concrete strategies for career success. These informal gatherings provide an opportunity for educators to become more effective in their work along with opportunities to meet and network with colleagues from programs across campuses.

Back to School Course Preparation Retreat 2022: August 9th, 2022 - August 12th, 2022
The retreat is formatted with two structured workshop days and two independent workdays:
Does your department need something specific for your faculty? Do you want everyone in your department to attend one of our programs? We offer On-Demand programs, just for these reasons. If you missed a program, if you want your whole department to attend, or maybe you need something very specific, we cover that too. Have a topic you want us to cover in our newsletter or podcast? Let us know! We want to know what you need (or want) because odds are... you're not alone! Submit our form to let us know the workshops you want, podcasts topics, newsletter articles, or general resources you want CETL to cover.
We understand sometimes you can't make one of our regular workshop sessions and you may need support outside the hours of 8-5. That's what this is for!
