Resolution: Teaching Tools

January 2018 CT2 Newsletter

Resolved to add new tools to your teaching toolbox? We have the programs to get you started!

A Note from Our Director

It’s my pleasure to welcome all faculty back to their home campuses as we begin the spring semester. I am excited about stepping in as the director of the CT2 and look forward to meeting and developing a working relationship with you.

As our unified centers move forward, you can expect us to continue to offer a variety of high quality faculty development programming, and I encourage faculty on all campuses to participate.

Through this newsletter we will keep you informed of current programming, services, and new developments to better serve you. I invite you to review our spring events and other opportunities on our website and to look for opportunities to add more tools to your teaching toolbox.

Best wishes for the new semester!

Dr. Nancy Remler, CT2 Director

Each of our certificates is tied to an intensive program. Be sure to sign up for the right intensive program to get you started!
