How can we help?

The Center for Teaching and Learning sponsors workshops, programs, and other events to provide Boise State instructors with opportunities to reinforce best-practices in teaching, learn from colleagues, and reflect upon the choices we make as teachers.

We offer a wide variety of programming to meet the needs of teachers across the university. These opportunities are designed to build connections across campus, spark new ideas and strategies, or simply re-energize one’s teaching.

CTL Staff in Action

Susan Shadle, executive director of the Center for Teaching and Learning, gave an invited plenary presentation titled “An Exploration Focused on Our Students” at the National Conference for Advanced POGIL Practitioners in St. Louis at Washington University in June. The session provided an overview of student development models and invited participants to consider how an understanding of student development can help us do a better job of meeting our students where they are.
