** Registration Procedures Update **

In order for attendees to personally track their current registrations and attendance at certificate of completion workshops and events, the Center for Teaching Excellence requires that all registrants create an account in our registration system and login to register for all workshops.


If you have an existing training account with the Division of Human Resources, Office of Organizational and Professional Development, you do not need to create an account. You can login using your HR training username and password. By logging in to register for CTE events, your complete training record for both CTE and HR trainings will be available with a single account and login.


The Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) inspires excellence and innovation in teaching. CTE provides support for faculty professional development, pedagogical consultations, instructional design support, and graduate teaching assistant professional development.  

CTE strives to support the university in providing all students a quality learning experience and achieve excellence in teaching by developing and offering all who teach programs for course development and improvement, implementing new instructional technologies, and providing support services based on pedagogical methods informed by research on teaching and learning.
