WisCEL Program Overview
Wisconsin Collaboratory for Enhanced Learning (WisCEL) is a collaborative initiative that works in partnership with faculty from across the institution to challenge traditional ideas about effective instructional models, course design, and learning spaces. WisCEL combines innovative pedagogy and course design, faculty support, and program evaluation with technology-enhanced, collaboration-friendly learning spaces to achieve efficiencies while increasing student success.
A comprehensive offering of technology-enhanced formal instruction, self-paced independent and group study, tutoring, and social events are available to WisCEL students. These opportunities, in combination, lead to confident, independent, lifelong learners. Embracing the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s strategic priority to provide an exemplary undergraduate education through modern-day learning practices, the ultimate goal of WisCEL is success for all students.
