Center for Excellence in Teaching & Learning

Supporting and Serving EFSC Faculty

Welcome to the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) at Eastern Florida State College. The CETL strengthens teaching across the College by connecting faculty with information, resources and best practice ideas that enhance learning.

The CETL also facilitates faculty collaboration and the discussion of new developments in higher education — helping our faculty in their role as innovators.

Simply put: we're a clearinghouse for all the tools that support excellence in teaching.

The power of collaboration

Connections with our colleagues can lead to new ideas, whether our collaborations take place via faculty committees, on-site workshops, or virtual discussions. We encourage full- and part-time EFSC faculty to submit a CETL workshop proposal.
