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 and the Academic Dean, the CTL sponsors support for the following:
Faculty work together in small groups of collective inquiry and action research to achieve better results for the students they teach. PLCs operate under the assumption that the key to improved learning for students is continuous job-embedded learning for educators.
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.
The CTL has resources for creating and implementing assessment of student learning and using the results of assessments to inform revised approaches to teaching and learning.
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.
