Your home for teaching resources

Being an excellent instructor is a lifelong process. There is always something we could do better. Always some assignment that could be improved. Always some concept that students struggle to learn for which we can provide a better learning experience. We strive to lead students into lifelong learning.

To this end, the Center for Teaching Excellence is here to facilitate the ongoing advancement of instructional excellence in both online and face-to-face courses at Bainbridge State College. Explore the resources!
