The purpose of assessment is to improve learning and inform continuous improvement. CEE can help you determine which methods are best for you and your situation. For more on Assessment visit the Evaluating Learning page.

Course (re)Design

Many factors affect course design.  The specialists at CEE are ready to partner with instructors as they build and redesign their courses. We start with some simple questions:

  • What knowledge do you want your students to achieve by the end of the course?
  • What skills should students master by the end of the course?
  • What are the attitudes and “habits of mind” students should demonstrate and value by the end of the course?


CEE collaborates with many departments and faculty on campus to make data-driven and evidence-based improvements in undergraduate education. Collaborations have varying  degrees of involvement, ranging from consultations about teaching practices to new course design, intensive data collection, and pedagogical experiments.

Teaching with Technology

Technology is an integral part of learning and teaching at UC Davis. It can be challenging to keep up with the constantly evolving educational technologies available.CEE specialists can work with you to identify how to integrate technology to align with your learning objectives and instructional goals, and support you as you get started. Visit a new campus resource with teaching with technology.
