Who We Are
The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning was established in 2007 to promote student learning by continually improving teaching at The University of Mississippi. The Center works to provide resources and assistance to faculty members related to their teaching endeavors.
Recognizing that learning is a process that needs constant attention and refinement, the Center works to promote an ongoing, university-wide discussion about teaching and learning issues. It is essential that faculty be engaged in dialog about teaching and learning issues so that we can continue to adapt to the changing technology, student body, and understanding in our fields.

The Office of the Provost, along with the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning and the Division of Outreach and Continuing Studies, is pleased to announce that additional $500 grants have been made available to faculty members to participate in and complete a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) of the applicant’s choosing during the 2015 calendar year.
We will award up to twenty MOOC participation grants during 2015. The MOOC must be completed by Dec. 31, 2015 and the participant must provide documentation of satisfactory completion of the course. Awardees will be asked to submit a one-page summary of their experience. There is no additional requirement for a recipient; the goal of this grant program is simply to increase faculty awareness of this new type of online education so that our campus can engage in informed dialogue.
Full-time faculty members are eligible to apply for the grant. Please see more details and how to apply here - MOOC Grant.
