Center for Teaching Excellence

Throughout the year, CTE offers a series of timely programs open to the entire SMU teaching community.  Topics range from the theoretical to the practical, from time-tested to ripped from the headlines.  The programs are presented by recognized experts from within the SMU faculty, and are designed to foster discussion about teaching and learning issues.
