SoTL

The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning is a relatively new academic discipline that researches the effects of teaching methodology. The CTE offers numerous programs, institutes, and consulting services to help faculty do a SoTL project. We can help faculty get started by obtaining IRB approval, creating a research project, and giving tips for article writing and publication.

D2L

What distinguishes GGC as the campus of tomorrow is the use of technology to enhance learning. One way in which faculty can enhance learning through technology is to utilize the powerful Desire2Learn (D2L) learning management system. The CTE offers training, online tutorials, and one-on-one consulting for D2L.
