Welcome to the Faculty Forum
Welcome to the Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning, Faculty Forum.
Whether you are new to UNC, or a returning faculty, instructor, TA or academic leader, I’d like to welcome you to our Faculty Forum by reiterating our mission and goals at the Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (CETL) are to serve and collaborate with quality and respect and to support and enhance your instructional and pedagogical interests or needs.
The Faculty Forum has for the past two years been promoting a range of new opportunities for teaching, learning and academic activity. Through our Faculty Forum series of professional development events, held primarily on campus, we have worked with faculty and others to deliver diverse scholarly presentations and workshops, illustrating and engaging participants in collegial discussion and critical reflection around trusted teaching methods, new and emerging pedagogical approaches, and the role of new technologies in college courses. Whether you teach on campus or online, or mixed, we are here to facilitate your own professional development or scholarship. We are here to support your endeavors, answer your questions, and provide the collaboration or resources you need to get the job done!
As part of our commitment to collaboration, creativity and innovation, the Faculty Forum initiatives span a variety of topics and areas of relevance to faculty and instructors interested in delivering and promoting quality teaching, learning and scholarship. Some ongoing areas of focus and interest include but are not limited to:
- The Flipped Classroom and Interactive Teaching and Learning
- New Technologies and Student Learning
- The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)
- Engaged Scholarship Community Based Teaching and Learning
- Ethics, Empathy and Implications for Instruction and Classrooms
- Assessment, Statistics and Quantitative Research Design Considerations
- Building Inclusive Classrooms: Changing Demographics and Diversity
- Online and hybrid instruction supported through Instructional Design & Development (IDD) and Quality Matters (QM), (supported by Sherri Lancton & Kate Endres, Instructional Designers)
We hope to continue to expand upon these activities and as always, we are also looking forward to more new and exciting offerings. Check out our fall schedule now available!

Whatever you have in mind or if you simply would like more information, please do not hesitate to contact me, or any of our staff.
