Instructional Services

CELT instructional services are tailored to the specific needs of engineering faculty. Our consultants build on current research to offer a diverse set of instructional development opportunities. At CELT, we recognize the time and intellectual commitments of professors and teaching personnel at a large research university. That’s why CELT instructional services are always…

  • grounded in scholarship
  • personalized to your needs
  • flexible, integrated, and systematic

In our experience, small changes over time lead to big payoffs. Our clients have improved their teaching evaluations and enhanced learning and teaching within their classrooms.
