The Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning (CATL)

We partner with faculty to promote a culture of continuous improvement in teaching by investigating and engaging with evidence-based best practices, professional development opportunities, the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL), and the cultivation of reflective learning communities. Our ultimate goal is to engender lifelong learning in instructors to enhance the student experience.

Online Teaching Fellows

Our Lead Instructional Designer, Todd Dresser, runs our online teaching fellows program during the January winterim period. The blended course covers a range of pedagogical, design and technology topics that are designed to prompt participants to reflect on their online course's impact on student's learning.

Reading Groups

The CATL Reading Group is open to all. Join us to discuss a few short readings a few times each semester. Our discussions will center on themes central to teaching and learning. Each semesters’ topics follow a “common thread,” but prior involvement is never required.

Special Topics Workshops

CATL does its best to offer timely workshops, helpful sessions, discussion groups, forums, seminars, lectures, and more for instructors at UWGB. Often, these events can stand alone, but those who attend multiple will soon see the growing culture of continuous improvement in teaching CATL is working to cultivate.
