Professional Development for CECLs
The Chang School is committed to supporting our current continuing education contract lecturers (CECLs) in the development and enhancement of their teaching skills, particularly as they relate to the adult learner and to online learning. Under the leadership of our Teaching Chair, the Chang School Teaching and Learning Committee works collaboratively with Ryerson’s Centre for Excellence in Learning and Teaching to offer workshops and events on topics related to best practices in learning and teaching.
Reminders about professional development opportunities will be sent via email to CECLs throughout each term.
