Enhancement Days

The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning typically hosts an Enhancement Day during the Welcome Week at the beginning of the Fall Semester and Spring Semester. It is usually scheduled for one day and is dedicated to professional and faculty development for the entire campus. Fourteen of these events have been held between Fall 2007 and Spring 2015, with over 4,501 points of contact with UW-Superior faculty and staff.

Enhancement Days are often themed to focus on specific issues in higher education or on issues specific to UW-Superior. Sometimes they are open to an array of sessions developed by campus experts related to professional development and higher education. Details about past Enhancement Days can be reviewed in the CETL Connections Newsletters in CETL's News Archive.
