Virtual Center for Teaching Excellence > Contacts

The Virtual Center for Teaching Excellence (vCTE) is a collaboration of faculty developers from across the University. The vCTE's mission is to promote the value and practice of teaching for the advancement of student learning by providing web access to the University's development resources. Learn more from our brochure .

We envision a campus-wide network of experienced mentors who can provide support for individual faculty development needs. Towards that end, you may call on the faculty development coordinator in your College or School to suggest a mentor with appropriate expertise.

The vCTE is currently seeking authors! We invite all Creighton University faculty to submit original content for the vCTE website related to teaching and learning, essential information for new faculty, teaching at a distance, or teaching with technology. See information at right.
