The Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE) at The University of Virginia’s College at Wise was established to enhance the quality of public education and serves as the outreach arm of the UVa-Wise Education Department.

It provides outreach, continuing education, and professional development for PK-12 educators through workshops, training and coursework. The Center assists professional school personnel in the acquisition, understanding, and use of knowledge in their academic disciplines; developing and effectively using pedagogical skills and competencies in their instruction; addressing and successfully meeting the Standards of Learning established by the State Board of Education; and addressing and successfully meeting the legislative mandates set forth by the federal and state government.

Opportunities for teachers include a variety of professional development workshops, conferences, college courses, online courses, and intensive institutes.  The Center currently serves over 2,500 educators each year who are employed in over 100 Virginia public school divisions.
