Compendium for Teaching Excellence
Resources for Teaching
The Compendium for Teaching Excellence (CTE) provides resources to enable faculty to become exceptional instructors. Whether you are a new instructor seeking insight into teaching the case method, a veteran instructor who wants a new perspective on classroom presentation or grading strategies, a ladder faculty member looking to improve teaching evaluations, or an old hand developing a new course, CTE offers a range of resources to help you improve as an instructor and elevate learning for Haas students.
