Our Vision :

The Center of Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) has a new identity that reflects its renewed energy and expanded vision. CETL aims to equip students and teachers at the university with the necessary skills, knowledge, and attitudes required in their profession to impact their learning outcomes positively. The Center continues to offer contemporary academic programs that provide relevant skills and perspectives to students, practicing teachers, and professionals.
Despite the importance of Teacher Education in the education system, it is one of the least focused areas. Strengthening teachers is the key to sustainable long-term reform since they impact the lives of thousands of students in their teaching careers. Therefore, the center will also focus on this pillar and enhance its effectiveness.
