CETL Celebrating Teaching Day

Every Spring, CETL hosts Celebrating Teaching Day as a time for faculty and graduate students to gather together to showcase pedagogical research and teaching accomplishments from the past year. This annual event provides an opportunity for instructors from across campus to reflect on practices and strategies that enhance student learning, and to celebrate Georgia Tech educational efforts. The event typically includes a luncheon, a guest speaker, a brief program honoring teaching excellence, and a poster display session where our Teaching Fellows and Teaching Scholars, the Brittain Fellows, and other campus constituents highlight ongoing projects, initiatives and research they have engaged in during the year.
