Tip - Make Use of the CELT Library
CELT invites you to browse the CELT Library in 3015 Morrill Hall. We have added several new titles to the library recently, including videos from NACADA, the National ACademic ADvising Association; books such as Research and Practice of Active Learning in Engineering Education and How to Talk About Hot Topics on Campus; and more. We also have teaching-related films such as Finding Forrester that, like our other materials, can be checked out for two weeks. Take a look at our holdings via the online database, and read more about the CELT Library.
