"Since  CELT came into existence, there has been a much stronger sense among students and faculty that teaching matters at Tulane."

"CELT Provided confidence to try new techniques from information provided and having better expectations from hearing  'war stories' from other faculty.  Books, both via book club and lending library, were also very helpful in gaining ideas to be a stronger teacher and stepping back to take in a wider prospective from a  pool of experts."

"CELT is one of many factors that has helped me adjust my teaching toward a more active, participatory format. This includes think-pair-share and other activities to get students more involved."

"CELT provided more ideas for hands-on activities for students, which keeps them more engaged in classroom learning."

"I rely less on lectures and have made my classes much more 'student-centered' (a term I learned from CELT).  This has made it more fun to teach and I also feel that it has helped me at least partially address the problem of teaching students with different backgrounds and different levels of interest in the subject."

"Receiving funding enabled me to have guest speakers and other activities that I could incorporate into my syllabus  and thereby expand the students' experiences as well as elaborate further on certain subjects."
