Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The COVID-19 pandemic has put us in a unique education position. These curated lists of teaching and wellness resources are for teachers who are new to the online environment and non-teachers who now need to home school their children. They aim to support meaningful learning opportunities and critical self-care no matter the modality or the audience.

Supporting Faculty Is What We Do.

The Ashford University Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) believes that taking care of faculty directly impacts the care they in turn give to our students. Accordingly, the CETL proactively anticipates and efficiently responds to our faculty’s needs. From supplying classroom support, professional development opportunities, engagement activities, and clear communication to managing teaching schedules, payroll, and faculty data, our work ensures that faculty can be their best where it counts the most – in the classroom.
