CETL Year in Review

As I begin my first full academic year as the CETL Director, I want to thank everyone for their support, confidence, and patience this past semester.  The CETL staff are committed to supporting the mission of the University by providing opportunities for professional growth to faculty and staff. Our journey this past year was characterized by new challenges and opportunities during this transitional period. Despite the changes in the department, we’re proud of the accomplishments we’ve achieved. View a summary of our achievements in our Annual Report Infographic below.

The NMC stimulates and furthers the exploration and use of new media and technologies for learning and creative expression.” The NMC is best known for its Horizon Reports which are a collaboration between the NMC and EDUCAUSE LEARNING INITIATIVE (ELI) to identify and describe emerging technologies that are likely to have an impact on teaching, learning, and creative inquiry in education.
