Educator Free Professional Development 

The Center of Excellence for Teaching and Learning at SCSU was established in 2021 to support educational innovation through research, professional development, policy work, and systemic reform initiatives through collaborations both within and outside of the university. Among the Center's flagship programs is the Colloquium Series, first presented in 2021. We work collaboratively to develop the program, inviting experts in their fields from outside the university to address current topics in education innovation. Visit our Colloquium Series page and Events page to learn about our upcoming and past programs.
