Teaching & Learning Center Logo

The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) sponsors a variety of on-going instructional development opportunities for faculty that support teaching objectives in each discipline.


“In the end, inspired teaching keeps the flame of scholarship alive.... Without the teaching function, the continuity of knowledge will be broken.” 

- Ernest L. Boyer, Scholarship Reconsidered


In collaboration with the Faculty Development Committee, the Instructional Resources Committee, the General Education Committee and the Academic Dean, the CTL sponsors support for instructional development, including, but not limited to:


ACBSP Accredited School

Teaching Academy

The YCP Teaching Academy is a highly-structured instructional development program that engages participants in a well-supported process of critical reflection while adapting learner centered pedagogies and technologies.  Participants who complete the Teaching Academy will be issued a York College Teaching Academy Certificate to complement their CV and teaching portfolios.  Click here for more details about the Teaching Academy.


Learning Communities (FLC)

Faculty work together in small groups of collective inquiry and action research to achieve better results for the students they teach. 


Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)

Faculty integrate their teaching with research about student learning and produce a scholarly product that is critically evaluated and informs other members of the scholarly community.


Faculty Development Retreats

The CTL offers several days of teaching development workshops, discussions and collegial activities for faculty from all disciplines to get together and share ideas about teaching and learning. 

Contact the CTL Director to get more information or to suggest ideas for providing additional instructional development resources for faculty.  Click here for more details about CTL programs for faculty.
