About Us

The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) is dedicated to the advancement of best practices in teaching and learning at The University of Texas at Tyler. The CETL provides workshops, seminars, and retreats for faculty and staff throughout the year to promote research-based, inclusive, and engaging teaching in order to enhance the academic success of UT Tyler students.
