Seminars

The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning will be offering teaching seminars and presentations on topics to enhance teaching and learning. The seminars provide an opportunity to gather with colleagues to listen, discuss, comment, interact, and reflect on a number of topics. They are organized on a first-come, first-serve basis.

If you are an individual with a disability and need accommodations, please contact Stacey Valliere at stacey.valliere@uconn.edu

The seminars are available to faculty, graduate students, and professional staff. Reservations are required and are accepted on a first-come-first serve basis. If you have signed up and are not able to attend, your colleagues would appreciate it if you unregistered, as we often have others who would like to register. Feedback from you is also important. It will help us focus as well as plan a more diverse program.
