The Center for Academic and Professional Enhancement (CAPE)
Our mission is to support the institution’s mission by supporting faculty in their development as effective teachers who facilitate and assess student learning through engagement, innovation, incorporating and conducting educational research and create effective learning environments.
Feel free to schedule an appointment for one-on-one support. We are happy to meet with you in person, via lync/zoom, or over the phone.
We offer a multitude of workshops on different topics ranging from classroom assessment techniques to test item writing. Check our registration website to sign up or browse our schedule to see what activities are on the horizon.

CAPE is proud to present on-demand training options that empower faculty and staff to take professional development into their own hands – accessing training when and where they want it.
When I first arrived at WesternU I was confident in my clinical skills but had little formal training on how to be an educator. The CAPE Center provides an organized forum for me to explore resources and grow to be a stronger instructor both in the classroom and in the clinic. In particular, I appreciate sessions that help keep me updated on the use of technology to facilitate student learning (and assessment) and value the relationships that I’ve built because of the opportunities that CAPE provides.Jasmine Wong Yumori, OD, FAAO
Presenting through CAPE allows me to efficiently reach faculty from all departments on campus. It is a great opportunity to interact with them and expose them to resources and services they may not have been aware of.Ruth Harris, MLIS
The CAPE team has been very supportive in helping us develop Articulate Modules for our course. We have been attending the workshops provided by Adam and also have received one-on-one help to make sure the curriculum delivered is without any technical problems. We certainly value and appreciate the CAPE team!Airani Sathananthan, MD, MSHS, FACE, FACP
