Welcome to the website for the Center for Teaching Excellence. At CTE, our goal is to foster an intellectual community of instructors devoted to improving their teaching practices and increasing student learning. We hope you find the many resources on this website helpful for yourself as well as your students. We also encourage you to take note of the opportunities for faculty funding and course transformation sponsored by CTE, as well as recent publications on the scholarship of teaching.

CTE's Spring 2021 meetings will be held remotely. Please check with your program leader for details, or contact Judy Eddy at jeddy@ku.edu.
