We are here to support you. At the Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship (CNDLS), we provide faculty with space and opportunity to focus on teaching practice, both individually and in community. We want to assist however we can, whether you are unsure how to articulate your teaching challenge or you already know what you need.
