Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning

The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning provides tools, resources and opportunities for collaboration among faculty. We support the development of faculty as teachers and scholars, grounded in the Jesuit mission.

The goal of the center is to support and foster the development of faculty as teachers and scholars and provide a venue for dialogue and the sharing of resources among faculty. The Center was founded in 2009 by Dr Frederick Bonato and Dr. David Surrey with a focus on classroom pedagogy. In 2017, as part of the Ignatian Colleagues Program Capstone Project, Dr. Maryellen Hamilton and Dr. Mary Kate Naatus, revitalized the Center by updating all of its content and incorporating the Jesuit mission theme.

The Center runs an average of two idea sharing discussion groups a semester, highlighting the content on these pages. If something catches your interest on these pages and you would like us to have a discussion group focused on that topic or if you would like to submit something to be considered for these pages, please use the following portal.
