Welcome to the John P. "Jack" Ellbogen Center for Teaching and Learning
About Us: The mission of the ECTL is to promote, support and evaluate the active pursuit of teaching and learning excellence for UW's teaching 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 and experienced faculty and graduate students, learning communities, book discussions, and grant-supported projects. We consult with individuals and provide 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 to support teaching and learning events.
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.
