Welcome to the John P. "Jack" Ellbogen Center for Teaching and Learning

"If you want to walk fast, walk alone. If you want to walk far, walk with others" ~ African Proverb

The mission of the ECTL is to promote, support and evaluate the active pursuit of teaching and learning excellence for UW's instructional community through a broad range of research-based programs, services and resources. We support instructors on-and off-campus by

  • Highlighting "best-practice" pedagogies
  • Encouraging innovative and transformative teaching
  • Supporting the development of sustained reflective practice
  • Fostering university-wide dialogue and collaboration among colleagues


In service of our mission, we create a broad array of programs that include workshops and seminars for new faculty and graduate students, forums, book discussions, and grant-supported projects. We consult with individuals and provide informal and formal classroom evaluations. Our website provides a vast collection of Teaching Tips and Resources. We welcome suggestions for programs and are pleased to collaborate with university departments and support offices to co-sponsor teaching and learning events. 


The ECTL oversees:

All of our services and programs are free to the university’s instructional community both in and outside of Laramie, including faculty, lecturers, graduate teaching assistants, post-doctoral fellows, and anyone else involved in teaching at the university.

If you would like to collaborate with the ECTL for an event or project, or are interested in having us co-sponsor an event or project, please fill out our Collaboration Request Form. Please supply us with as much detail as possible, as this will assist us in reviewing proposals in a timely manner.


ECTL Director Call for Applications

Meg Skinner Meg Flanigan Skinner recently stepped down as the director of the Ellbogen Center for Teaching and Learning. She is taking a sabbatical in Spring 2015 and returning to the Department of Zoology and Physiology in the fall. We are more than grateful for the difference she has made in the lives of numerous faculty, staff, and students through her service to the center and to the university. We are the beneficiaries of her unwavering dedication to teaching and learning excellence.

The university is conducting an internal search for Meg's replacement in spring 2015. The deadline for applications was Sunday, February 1, 2015.
