These UAB faculty will join the current four QEP Fellows in helping to deliver educational content through the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL). This will include presenting seminars and interactive workshops, providing peer mentoring with faculty who want to enhance their courses, and developing other activities for the CTL to enhance the QEP.
