The Elkana Center continues the work of the Center for Teaching and Learning in supporting faculty in their teaching on a voluntary, non-evaluative, and confidential basis. This collaboration ranges from individual consultations, research-informed resources, and other support on specific topics to forums for sustained dialogue and growth. The Elkana Center also serves as hub for research on higher education and on teaching across CEU.

Consultations and Mentoring
Faculty and others with teaching responsibilities are invited to contact us for consultations on teaching-related issues. If desired, these can become sustained collaborations on teaching projects and/or systematic mentoring.
Faculty are encouraged to participate in this voluntary initiative to observe and to reflect on their teaching in a confidential format. Participants can invite a colleague, a faculty member from another department, or an Elkana Center faculty member.
Learn more about teaching with technology and other teaching topics via these online resources. While informed by scholarship, they are authored by Center colleagues to reflect the specific needs, resources, and experiences of colleagues teaching at CEU.
Teaching Development Grants
These grants support individual faculty members in the development of teaching projects. They are available on a competitive basis, with open calls twice per year. ACRO administers the grants and Elkana Center colleagues are available to collaborate with grant recipients.
Working with Teaching Assistants
TA-ships are a vital stage in doctoral students’ development as early-career teachers and enhance the learning of students in the course. Elkana Center colleagues support both TAs and faculty working with them to benefit the most from this experience.
