Center for Excellence in Teaching & Learning

A New Resource at CU Denver


Center for Excellence in Teaching & Learning

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, CETL works to foster the use of evidence-based educational strategies that have been demonstrated to foster learning and improve academic outcomes for students.

In its initial year (2019-2020), CETL is offering a full calendar of regular professional development opportunities including workshops, communities of practice, book clubs, ACUE credentials, as well as a new Student Course Assistant program for faculty. We also provide individual teaching consultations and observations. 

 Designing and Teaching a Virtual Course​

The Center for Excellence in Teaching & Learning has created a self-paced, 10-module course for anyone developing and teaching a virtual course for Summer and Fall 2020. 
This course is non-facilitated, meaning that you can work through the contents at your own pace, and based on your own needs and interests. Register here and then be redirected to the Canvas course!

Additional resources for working and teaching remotely can be found on our Rapid Remote Teaching Resources​ and/or Office of Digital Education.
