CTLT leads teaching workshops and discussions upon request. For interested schools, departments, programs or other organizations at the University of Richmond, CTLT provides workshops on a wide range of teaching topics — from course design to classroom strategies to professional development — for audiences from faculty to lecturers to teaching assistants. CTLT can also facilitate discussions of teaching within a program more generally, including conversations on curriculum development and implementation, and sessions addressing particular teaching challenges. In all cases, CTLT works with the requestor to develop a program that meets the group’s needs.
