Message from the CTL Director

As we approach the middle of the Spring semester, the CTL is providing an unprecedented number of March workshops to support UAB teachers. In addition to long-standing series, such as the Teaching Foundations workshops directed by Dr. Tino Unlap, or Interprofessional Teams in Healthcare by Allison Shorten, we are adding new topics in the Faculty Well-Being and UAB Libraries series. All are designed to bring you a wealth of teaching support and resources while learning from great presenters and interacting with some of UAB’s most successful teachers. 

Also, Tuesday, March 16th is the first of two wellness days for students, faculty, and staff. Learn more by reading the "Wellness Days" section on the UAB United Academics website and watch this video by Provost Pam Benoit.

We can't wait to see you at the CTL!
Scott L. Phillips, Ph.D.

eLearning Workshop Series

For those interested in learning more about the educational technology available to UAB faculty, or for faculty earning points towards the Online Design and Teaching Certificate, the CTL is hosting more eLearning workshops this month to help you reach your goal.
In addition to these workshops, the eLearning team provides full support and training for Canvas and academic technologies in all aspects of course and program development. Faculty can request one-on-one or group/departmental training sessions where an instructional technologist will provide customized assistance. Trainings can take place at your campus location, the eLearning office, or virtually via a web conferencing tool.
