Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (CETL)



CETL Leadership

The Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (CETL) consists of the CETL Director and two faculty members, appointed by the Interim Vice President for Academic Affairs. The CETL Director serves as the chair for the Advisory Committee. The Interim Vice President for Academic Affairs, the Dean of the Faculty, and the Director of Assessment Activities serve as ex officio members of the CETL Advisory Committee.

Our Role

The primary duties of the CETL Advisory Committee are to:

  • Advise the CETL Director on matters related to the development of policies, procedures, and programming.
  • Review faculty applications for CETL professional development opportunities and present recommendations on grant awards to the Dean of the Faculty.
  • Structure and manage policies, procedures, and operations related to the funding of faculty and professional development (in consultation with the Dean of the Faculty).

Innovative Teaching Grants

Innovative Teaching Grants provide support for projects focused on “new approaches” that foster engaged learning. “New approaches” refer to substantive changes in an instructor’s pedagogy. 

Grants are intended to provide faculty with an opportunity to try new techniques, activities, pedagogies, technologies, and course structures that can reasonably be expected to increase students’ active engagement and learning.

CETL Workshops

Workshops focus on teaching, learning, and instructional technology — with programming that enhances the personal and professional growth of Greensboro College faculty and staff. Inclusive meeting space is available for educators to gather and collaborate on excellence in academia.

“I loved the GC Honors program and Greensboro College. I felt safe and a sense of genuine belonging at the college. I worked closely with my thesis advisor and professors who helped inspire me to define my path and passion of interest. That path has led me to my doctoral studies in Engineering Mechanics.”
