Mission Statement

As part of MCC’s Office of Instruction, the Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT) serves as a resource for professional development in teaching. CELT’s role is chiefly supportive and its programs are designed to complement professional development within academic disciplines. Consequently, CELT seminars, workshops, and resources focus on elements of effective teaching common to and applicable in all disciplines. CELT strongly supports and encourages innovative teaching methodologies that integrate technology in order to foster an active and engaged learning environment.
