Active learning in Mathematics

Welcome to UC's hub of excellence for teaching and learning.

We cultivate great teaching by fostering communities of inquiry, practice and scholarship to impact student success by:

  • promoting research-based best practices; 
  • providing consultations on the programmatic, curricular, course, and individual level; 
  • advancing university initiatives in student learning;
  • supporting equity, diversity and inclusion; and 
  • inspiring, invigorating, and empowering faculty dedicated to the success of their students. 

Our areas of expertise and focus include: classroom pedagogy and innovation, assessment, scholarship of teaching and learning, course design, accessibility and gateway instruction.

CET&L Pre-semester COVID-19 Canvas Course Checklist

This pre-semester checklist includes a list of items to review before making your Canvas course available to students. The aim of this checklist is to save you time once the semester begins. A well-organized and clear course gives you more time to focus on teaching rather than troubleshooting.

Preparing for Online Teaching

CET&L has several resources for faculty preparing to transition to online teaching. To get started, you can visit the Preparing for Online Teaching website. It includes brief guidance, examples, and videos on topics such as selecting the right digital teaching tool(s) and transitioning face-to-face classes online. The Return to Campus/Online work group has also created a Canvas site for faculty teaching online or hybrid courses called "Excellence Online at UC." This course covers many best practices for online and hybrid teaching, including developing a course, teaching online, helping students and faculty with self care, and navigating UC technology tools.

WebEx or Phone Teaching Consultations Available

CET&L is currently conducting all teaching consultations remotely, either via WebEx or phone. Please use this form to request a teaching consultation. We respond to requests in the order of which they are received and will contact you shortly after receving your request. We look forward to speaking with you soon.
