The Wisconsin Collaboratory for Enhanced Learning (WisCEL) fosters instructional innovation, active learning, and high-quality teaching and learning opportunities by providing instructional resources, technology and support in multi-use student-centered learning environments on the UW-Madison campus.
We’ve updated the WisCEL website for Summer:
- Wendt Commons Construction Spring 2017 Update
- WisCEL is pleased to welcome our newest team member, Christine Lien, who will be joining us this June. Previously, Christine was the coordinator of the Math pre-calculus courses that were held in the College WisCEL Center. Christine has taught courses using active and blended learning approaches and is familiar with both WisCEL Centers on campus. We believe she will be a great addition to our team and a valuable asset to instructors and students. We will be highlighting her as the summer WisCEL Person of the Month (to be updated soon).
- The summer session has started. Courses in WisCEL this summer include: ANATOMY 622, CHE 255, COMP SCI 302, KINES 235, MATH 112, MATH 118, and WiscAMP.
- On the Publications of Interest page, you will find a National Public Radio “50 Great Teachers” interview with Carl Wieman, “A Nobel Laureate’s Education Plea: Revolutionize Teaching”.
- In Around Campus, we post information about current teaching and learning events and opportunities happening around the UW-Madison campus.
Upcoming events and campus opportunities sponsored by WisCEL and UW-Madison teaching and learning partners.
