The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL, pronounced see-tul) helps faculty explore effective teaching techniques and innovative academic tools at Georgia State. The CETL team brings together under one name Center for Teaching and Learning at Perimeter College and the Center for Instructional Effectiveness and the Center for Instructional Innovation from the university's main campus.
CETL includes both a new, state-of-the-art facility at the Atlanta campus that centralizes faculty support and a broad team of professionals who can assist faculty with everything from selecting learning technologies to increase student immersion to examining teaching practices that lead to positive learning outcomes.
The center’s combined team offers a variety of workshops and consulting services to assist with creating and evaluating courses and academic programs. CETL’s joint resources also include a number of grants, fellowships and programs designed to encourage effective and inventive teaching. “We want to provide resources that result in improved student experiences and that help faculty meet students’ learning needs,” states Dr. Pamela Moolenar-Wirsiy, CETL Director at Perimeter College.
CETL will work with faculty on everything from integrating academic technologies into courses to imagining new learning environments to providing opportunities for students to gain digital skills and apply knowledge.
Many of CETL’s staff will be housed in
the new CETL facility in Library South. The new facility includes a
simple-to-use video recording studio, audio recording studios, and an
interactive classroom that showcases emerging technologies to provide faculty
access to the latest teaching equipment.
