Faculty regularly evaluate their courses to enhance student success and improve learning outcomes.

The rapid pace of change in today’s learning environment creates a constant challenge for professors juggling teaching, research and service. At SUNY Maritime, busy academics turn to the Center for Teaching Excellence.

Like the faculty it serves, the Center is dynamic, harnessing research-driven approaches towards pedagogy, assessment, and educational technology, highlighting and sharing reflective practices, and creating mentoring networks.

The Center supports faculty with hands on assistance and by hosting events that:

  • Share and promote new and evolving educational tools and resources.

  • Allow colleagues and peers to share research and best classroom practices.
