The CLT supports faculty and academic staff with classroom and virtual teaching techniques, course design, the Canvas learning management system, improving diversity, equity, and inclusion in the classroom, and professional development. We are here to help!

We offer a variety of types of support to faculty. One-on-one consultation appointments are available year-round, both in-person and virtually. Please let us know when you make an appointment whether you would like to be in-person or remote. We also offer a mix of in-person and virtual events like workshops, reading and writing groups, and learning communities to accommodate both full-time and part-time faculty. See our calendar for more information.

The CLT is located in the Miller Information Commons (the Library) on the second floor. We are open 9-5 every weekday except College holidays, twelve months a year. Faculty and academic staff are welcome to visit, have a cup of coffee or tea, and consult one of our staff with your quick questions depending on availability. If you would like an in-depth conversation or demonstration, or you want to talk to a specific person, please make an appointment with one of us.
