About the Center for Excellence in Teaching, Learning & Innovation

The Center for Excellence in Teaching, Learning and Innovation promotes teaching excellence and innovation at the University of Pennsylvania.

Collaborating with instructors, graduate students, staff, programs, and offices across the university, CETLI:

  • Supports all instructors from senior faculty to new teaching assistants in realizing their teaching aims and developing as teachers;
  • Bolsters the people, processes, and technological infrastructure needed to make possible outstanding teaching on or beyond Penn’s campus;
  • Leads Penn through an evolving educational landscape and advances teaching and learning initiatives informed by changes in our student body, technology, and pedagogy;
  • Fosters a culture of inclusive and excellent teaching at Penn. 

Through this work, the center enhances the learning experiences of all our students and learners, and the quality and reach of a Penn education.
