Approved by Academic Council on February 14, 2002; Administration on April 24, 2002
Formed in 1997, the Center for Teaching and Learning, (CTL) is a faculty development organization whose goal is to provide expertise, resources, and programming to help faculty develop and improve their teaching skills and to enhance opportunities for students to learn. The CTL sponsors workshops and lectures by University faculty and invited speakers on topics relevant to pedagogy, student learning, and the incorporation of technology into teaching and learning. The CTL has a multimedia studio and permanent staff to assist faculty in developing course materials, using information technology resources, and in developing and implementing research and grant projects. An advisory group with members from diverse academic units meets several times each year to review and advise on programming goals and to assess faculty needs.
