Center for Teaching Excellence - Faculty Development

The Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) provides course offerings that are designed to inspire and support educators. These courses provide practical application using research-based best practices. In addition to our course offerings, CTE also provides new faculty members with Instructional Practices coaching through their first course teaching at Franklin and is committed to cultivating teaching excellence through measuring teaching effectiveness.
