The CTL is pleased to announce a new certificate program that acknowledges participation in a series of teaching fundamentals workshops.

The Essentials of Teaching and Learning workshop series provides a foundation in important aspects of teaching and learning in higher education. Faculty, graduate students, and academic support staff seeking to earn the Essentials of Teaching and Learning Certificate should attend each of the five workshops in this series and also complete one peer observation by visiting a TOP Course.  The program has been designed so that the certificate can be earned in one semester but there is no time limit.

Workshop topics include:

  • Syllabus 101
  • Introduction to Learning Objectives and Backward Design
  • Using Feedback to Improve Teaching and Learning
  • Inclusive Teaching and Learning
  • Getting Started with Active Teaching and Learning

All UNC Charlotte instructors are welcome to pursue this certificate.
