Preparing and Submitting Your Tip

Consider short paragraphs for better readability online. We recommend using heading levels, visuals, and other to attract readers. Please include citations in APA format and your name(s) as you’d like it to appear as the contributor. Please submit electronically to ctl@humboldt.edu by the Friday before the Tuesday Tip is posted. All Tips will be published and archived on the CTL website.

Assessment Plan for Tips

The CTL will provide an annual follow-up to all faculty receiving tips to gather feedback on the usefulness, timeliness of tips, as well as what they'd like to see in the future. We also pull Google Analytics from our Tip archive page, and total of subscribees to the tips.
