Workshops organized by the Center for Advancing Teaching and Learning Through Research (CATLR) provide a hands-on opportunity for faculty to delve into a specific topic, issue, or approach in teaching and learning. We offer distinct workshop series for faculty and graduate students. Led by one of your colleagues at CATLR, the events offer the opportunity to try out or work on an aspect of your course along with your colleagues both within and outside of your field. This interdisciplinary environment provides the opportunity to look at a variety of approaches to what is being discussed.

Workshops are interactive sessions, typically 90-minutes in length, facilitated by CATLR colleagues for Northeastern University instructors. In addition to our open workshop schedule, CATLR designs and facilitates workshops for departmental groups.
