Special Events

Whether it's sharing teaching strategies or providing training on the latest learning technology, the Center for Teaching and Learning's (CTL) interactive programs and special events support faculty in providing effective and innovative learning experiences.

Our signature events and workshop series throughout the year are a great opportunity for faculty to come together to share ideas, showcase their successes, develop new approaches to teaching, and learn from their colleagues.

Celebrating Teaching Day (March)

Every spring, CTL hosts Celebrating Teaching Day as a time for faculty to gather together to showcase teaching accomplishments, pedagogical research, and education initiatives from the past year. It's 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 members of the learning communities, the Brittain Fellows, and other campus constituents highlight ongoing projects, initiatives, and research they have engaged in during the year.
