Until 2013, these Teaching Tips came from the Teaching Issues Writing Consortium which
was hosted by the Faculty Center for Excellence in Teaching (FaCET) at Western Kentucky
University. In June 2013, Valerie Lopes of Seneca College and Fran Glazer of the New
York Institute of Technology volunteered to gather and prepare the collection.
If you have a tip that you’d like to share, please send it to Jeanne Mullaney (email@example.com) so that we can forward it to the consortium and continue to receive tips from faculty
in institutions all over the United States.
To receive future Teaching Tips by email along with future CITLA events, please send
an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
