THE CENTER FOR TEACHING, LEARNING, AND INNOVATION
DEDICATED TO YOUNG LEARNERS
Teaching requires a deep and nuanced understanding of how young people learn and the many ways to teach them.
The CTLI supports and promotes teaching innovation through professional networking opportunities and the sharing of ideas. With access to a comprehensive library of resources and tools and opportunities for educational research and professional development, teachers continually enhance how they teach in ways that positively impact childrens’ academic and social-emotional growth.
HOW THE CTLI SUPPORTS TEACHING
Based on the understanding that teaching is always improvable and a work in progress, the CTLI will:
Create opportunities for faculty to engage in a continuous discourse about student learning
Support new faculty as they develop into excellent teachers
Disseminate knowledge of the craft of teaching to support ongoing faculty professional development
Provide opportunities for faculty to learn from one another by sharing innovative teaching practices and strategies for improving student learning
Build synergy between faculty development efforts and student academic support services
Enable the academic success of students from diverse backgrounds by promoting best practices for inclusive teaching, investigating achievement gaps in student learning, and supporting strategies for overcoming such gaps
