The Center for Teaching Excellence aims to support Xavier faculty in creating rich, collaborative learning environments that challenge our students intellectually, morally, and spiritually. The Center will promote effective teaching that is reflective, engaging, creative, and informed by both pedagogical and disciplinary knowledge.


CTE Teaching Mentoring Pairs

As a counterpart to the CTE Faculty in Residence Program, which will run each Fall semester, the CTE is pleased to sponsor the Teaching Mentoring Pairs program, which will run each Spring semester. Both share a common goal: to support a culture of reflective teaching at Xavier by encouraging faculty members to observe one another teach and talk about the experience.
