Center for Teaching Excellence

The Center for Teaching Excellence at The University of Virginia's College at Wise was established to enhance the quality of public education. The Center is committed to serving the professional development and in-service needs of teachers and administrators in the public schools of Virginia.      

Seeking to enhance the quality of education by improving the instructional quality of teachers and administrators, The Center for Teaching Excellence assists professional school personnel in the acquisition, understanding, and use of knowledge in their academic disciplines; developing and effectively using pedagogical skills and competencies in their instruction; addressing and successfully meeting the Standards of Learning established by the State Board of Education; and addressing and successfully meeting the legislative mandates set forth by the federal government's "No Child Left Behind."

The Center utilizes the services of full-time director, instructional technology coordinator, and a number of qualified adjunct faculty to provide a variety of educational offerings to teachers, administrators and prospective teachers.
