Support for inclusive, evidence-based teaching and learning
The Center for Educational Effectiveness (CEE) offers training and resources to advance the quality, efficiency, inclusiveness, and effectiveness of instruction. Our goals are to enhance learning, increase retention, and improve time to graduation for all students. We provide curricular alignment, integration and assessment; advanced course/series research and development; and community building and professional development for faculty and TAs. The CEE supports evidence-based decision making in higher education through institutional- and college-scale analyses and modeling, and provides educational research support. We create academic analytic tools, analyzes learning systems, and implements predictive models for action.
