CERTI Committee

The CERTI committee is a group of faculty and staff at Missouri S&T committed to enabling the continual improvement of the Missouri S&T learning environment through emphasizing collaborative, experiential, and technology-enhanced teaching practices. Originally the committee was formed as an advisory group to the Center for Educational Research and Teaching Innovation. In 2018, the Center for Educational Research and Teaching Innovation merged into the Center for Advancing Faculty Excellence (CAFE). Through that transition, the CERTI committee remains as advocates to the teaching mission of CAFE. The committee meets once or twice a semester.
