Welcome to the Teaching Excellence Center
Welcome to the West Texas A&M University Teaching Excellence Center (TEC). The TEC was established in 2009 as a resource to support teaching and learning across the University campus through workshops, seminars, discussion and review of quality materials. The Center will also provide consulting services and peer observation opportunities for enhancing teaching. Currently, the TEC will provide materials virtually through this website. We hope that the Teaching Excellence Center will provide support and encourage your efforts to support the student centered mission of West Texas A&M University.
The mission of the TEC is to promote effective teaching and engaged learning through support of faculty as they strive to provide valuable learning experiences for our students. Our goals include supporting faculty needs through workshops, materials, seminars, small group discussions, and consultations as needed by departments, programs or on an individual basis.
