Faculty can explore topics related to teaching, learning, and instructional technologies by registering for 1-2 hour workshops. The CTL also offers “Workshops To Go” — an on-demand offering for departments or programs that wish to host a short pedagogical workshop for faculty.

Seminars and Institutes

Faculty interested in developing new teaching approaches, applications, and skills with hands-on guidance from CTL staff can apply to participate in semester-long seminar programs and multi-day immersive institutes.

Teaching Orientation

Faculty can kick off their semester by attending teaching orientation to learn evidence-based strategies they can implement on the first day of class. Teaching orientation introduces new faculty to the Columbia teaching culture but is also applicable for more “seasoned” instructors looking for a refresh.
