Meet the ECTL Assessment Team


UW Assessment Matrix


The Ellbogen Center for Teaching & Learning (ECTL) Assessment Team in collaboration with Dr. Francois Jacobs, in the College of Engineering & Applied Science, is excited to provide an opportunity to a limited number of departments/programs to pilot a Programmable Assessment Matrix that is designed for curriculum mapping and assessment tracking.

This Matrix was developed and successfully deployed during the Construction Management program's National Accreditation visit and has proven successful with features that can be customized for use by other departments and academic programs.

This opportunity is being offered free during the pilot year (AY 22/23). Program interested in participating in the pilot year of the Assessment Matrix are encouraged to contact Heather by October 1, 2022.

Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) at UW




SoTL (The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning) is defined at UW as "Systematic inquiry into student learning by integrating the experience of teaching and prior scholarship on teaching and learning and making the findings appropriately public. Thus, building a SoTL community which leads to the assessment and enhancement of student learning."  

We provide numerous opportunities in the upcoming academic year to learn more about the SoTL and to become part of the UW SoTL community. During Fall semester 2022 we will integrate SoTL activities into multiple learning communities and Ellbogen Center for Teaching and Learning (ECTL) Academy. For more information, please click here to visit our SoTL page.
