CEETL leads multiple programs and initiatives throughout the year, all of which support faculty as they engage in teaching and learning practices that contribute to student success.

Quality Learning and Teaching (QLT)

At SF State University we've cultivated a robust faculty learning community dedicated to quality learning and teaching. The QLT community includes the QLT Ambassadors and Mentors and SF State faculty experienced and interested in face-to-face, hybrid, and online teaching.

Affordable Learning

Academic Technology, The Leonard Library, the DPRC, and the SFSU Bookstore support faculty in replacing costly textbooks with lower cost alternatives by using high-quality open educational resources (OER), library resources, digital or customized textbooks, and/or faculty-authored materials.  Every dollar counts for many students. If students cannot afford the assigned class materials, they may try to learn without them.

SF State faculty have save students $7.8 million* with affordable instructional materials!

Collecting and sharing work within an ePortfolio can provide a powerful way to reflect on your academic and career goals.  We use the Portfolium as a campus wide ePortfolio platform.  This ePortfolio will allow students to cultivate and share their academic, personal and professional accomplishments and build a professional online presence while at SF State and after graduation.

Writing across the Curriculum / Writing within the Disciplines

WAC/WID is now a core initiative of CEETL! 

Writing across the curriculum/writing in the discipline (WAC/WID) describes a student-centered national movement to integrate writing across the curriculum and within all disciplines in higher education. At SF State, the Center for Equity & Excellence in Teaching & Learning (CEETL), the Committee on English Proficiency (CWEP), and Academic Affairs share responsibility for university-wide WAC. The WAC/WID program on campus, under the leadership of Juliana van Olphen, director, and Jolie Goorjian, associate director, aims to provide support to faculty teaching writing-intensive courses through creating opportunities for faculty to share best practices for effective writing pedagogy and strategies to assess student writing.
