“I was especially encouraged by how various areas of the College came together for the discussion,” wrote Susan Behrens, Ph.D., Director of C-TIE and Chair of the Communication Sciences and Disorders Department, after the workshop. “Faculty, Staff, the Center for Academic Support and Tutoring, Academic Access, and Disabilities Services – all in service to our students.”

Founded in 2011, MMC’s Center for Teaching Innovation and Excellence (C-TIE) is a physical and intellectual space where our faculty members can exchange ideas, seek advice and resources, stay up-to-date on the latest developments in pedagogy, and constantly grow as teachers and mentors. C-TIE pedagogy luncheons are open to faculty and staff and are offered three to four times a semester, featuring speakers and interactive workshops focused on pedagogical issues relevant to faculty work.
