Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL)

About Us

The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) is located on the 4th floor of the North Academic Center of the City College of New York. The Center is open during normal working hours throughout the semester.

Our Mission

The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning was reorganized in May 2013 and then again in 2014. Our mission encompasses training both part-time and full-time faculty at CCNY with a focus on developing teaching and technology skills.

Workshops are conducted in our training room on the 4th floor, NAC 4/220A and entail a range of technologies including Blackboard, hybrid/online teaching and instructional technologies. Workshops will typically take between 1 - 1.5 hours, include handouts, and have a practical focus that involves a specific context for learning.

Our History

Over a decade ago, the Workshop Center was founded to address workshops for CCNY faculty. In 2005, the Center was renamed The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) with a broader mission including both workshops and faculty development activities. Over time, CETL’s programs expanded to include assessment, grants/research, hybrid/online, faculty dialogues, and special events.

Hundreds of faculty have taken part in our workshops and have subsequently incorporated many of the best practices into their teaching. CETL now brings a strong tradition of excellence in faculty development into the broader sphere of campus-wide training in a range of essential technologies for teaching, learning, and administration.

Our Staff

The staff in the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) will be happy to make an appointment with you to help plan any seminars or training for faculty members.
