The Center for Teaching Excellence offers two certificates, each with the goal of producing instructors who desire to bring excellence into their classroom. These certificates are composed of 20 course topics comprised of 52 distinct learning modules. Each module may be taken separately, or applied to courses within the corresponding certificates.
Because they are offered online, participants can interact around busy work and personal schedules. We can also arrange to run the the Teaching Excellence courses in a face-to-face environment, according to what suits you best!
Our offerings provide a perfect and affordable opportunity for institutions who wish to provide professional development opportunities to their instructors. We provide .5 CEUs (five contact hours) for every module. Each module runs five day. Some of our courses are pending Arizona CTE certification for CEUs, with approval expected by November.
