Part of the CEE's mission is to inspire faculty to learn and engage with new or different teaching strategies. Our Innovative Pedagogies program is designed to provide inspiration through various mediums such as guest speakers, conferences, and workshops.
In the past years several years, we have focused on universal design learning (UDL), problem-based learning, community engagement, and flipping your classroom.
