About Us


The original teaching center at USF, the Center for Teaching Excellence, was founded by Jim Eison in the early 1990s. It became the Center for 21st Century Teaching Excellence in the mid-2000s, and included support for online teaching via its sub-units Media Innovation Team and eTG. In 2011, C21TE was split into two units: MIT and eTG went to Innovative Education, while the Academy for Teaching and Learning Excellence was established as part of Student Success.
