CTE Workshops

The Center for Teaching Excellence offers many different workshops covering a wide range of topics ranging from classroom management and course design to instructional technology and inclusive teaching. They are offered on a consistent schedule each semester. The workshops are informal and interactive and offer faculty and staff a safe environment to share and discuss their experiences. The Center also offers graduate student-specific workshops through the Academy of Future Faculty program. 

Other CTE Events

The Center is deeply involved in a wide range of programs and initiatives across the entire University. Over the course of the year it sponsors and helps support many different academic and social events such as showcases, receptions, and luncheons—all of which aim to highlight and recognize the achievements and successes related to teaching and learning at Texas A&M University.
