Faculty, staff, and graduate students are invited to visit the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology (CTLT) in its new home during the week of Halloween. In the spirit of the season, and to help everyone find its offices in Williams Hall, CTLT has set up a little trick-or-treating treasure hunt, complete with several teaching tips.

Starting Monday, October 28, check in at our reception office (124 Williams Hall) during normal business hours. You’ll get your treasure map and instructions for using GooseChase, an educational app. Using the map and the app, you’ll seek out teaching tips from CTLT’s staff. Each discovery is also worth points. When you have enough, you can claim an extra special goodie bag at the reception desk. In addition to some great teaching ideas, there might just be some candy and popcorn to be found along the way! The “Tips & Treats” treasure hunt will be available through Friday, November 1.

You can get a head start by downloading the free GooseChase app on your Android or iOS device now. It is free, and you don’t need to create an account in order to play.

CTLT moved from its old location in the Instructional Technology and Development Center (ITDC) to Williams Hall so work could begin on the University’s new Multicultural Center. Plans call for CTLT to be moved to newly renovated space in Milner Library in a few years.

The Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology, as a part of the division of Academic Affairs, supports instructors in their pursuit of excellence and innovation in teaching, student learning, and the effective use of technology. CTLT works with hundreds of tenured, nontenure track, and graduate teaching assistant instructors each year to improve students’ experiences in the classroom and online.
