Development Programs and Institutes

CTL provides several programs centered on transforming teaching at UGA from a National and Award-Winning Faculty Speakers Series to several Fellows programs to individual, formative evaluations and customizable, group-based workshops.

The CTL’s development initiatives are designed to improve student success at the University by partnering with faculty to implement innovative approaches to instruction. At the core of these services is the CTL’s desire to aid faculty as they seek to improve students’ academic success through engagement and deeper learning.

For more information about these services, contact Megan Mittelstadt at megan.mittelstadt@uga.edu
