Welcome to the CTE Blog!
Beginning in Fall 2017, the IUP Center for Teaching Excellence launched its blog and social media platforms in an effort to establish a new online community to connect faculty and teaching associates across disciplines.
The goals of the CTE Blog are to:
- share and promote CTE related events, reflections, resources, teaching experiences, teaching strategies, and basic teaching tips.
- To highlight CTE and IUP online faculty subscriptions.
- To connect the CTE website to social media for more engagement with CTE online.
