CTL leadership changes

Laura Crawley, Assistant Vice President and Director of the UGA Gwinnett Campus, has been named Interim Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning. This appointment is effective March 30, 2017. Dr. Crawley has nearly 20 years of leadership experience in higher education, and I am confident that she can guide the CTL during this transition until a permanent director is identified.

Congratulations to Eddie Watson, current Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning, who is leaving later this week to become Associate Vice President for Quality, Advocacy and LEAP Initiatives at the Association of American Colleges & Universities (AAC&U). We are thankful to Eddie for his excellent leadership in the CTL for the last five years and the transformational changes that he has brought to the unit. These have created strong foundations for faculty and TA development as well as pedagogical training. Programs such as the national speaker series and new fellowship programs in innovative teaching and technology have served our campus well.
