Their work is scholarly, grounded in current research on teaching and learning, innovative and carefully designed. CTE is one of the teaching centres we look to as an outstanding centre that models excellence in educational development.” — Feedback received via a "reputation survey" that CTE conducted as part of its 2017 External Review.
