Center for Teaching Excellence
Purpose: The CTE provides faculty with professional development opportunities to enhance teaching at all stages of their career. The Center creates a dialogue on the Western State Colorado University's campus teaching excellence. This dialogue aids new faculty in achieving the excellent teaching expected of all faculty and allows all faculty to explore pedagogical and curricular innovation on individual, departmental and institutional levels.
