The Center for Teaching & Learning (CTL) fosters a community of educators dedicated to supporting teaching and learning, a cornerstone of our university. Our goal is to transform our teachers and students in their educational practice, inspire innovative and evidence-based teaching, and create a culture of continuous improvement. Through the CTL, we strive to promote a diverse and inclusive community of educators and learners who serve as the hallmark of our student-centered campus.
Developing & Supporting CU Boulder’s Teaching Community of Practice
The campus has an extensive suite of programs and efforts that support teaching excellence. The CTL serves as a hub for this community, promoting best practices, communicating opportunities and elevating our education practice.
The university is committed to inclusion and increasing support of our diverse student body, starting in the classroom. Inclusive pedagogy is integral to this mission, and the CTL is committed to providing critical training and support for all CU faculty and graduate students in this arena.
Building Assessment Capacity for Faculty & Departments
Teaching excellence requires an ability to assess our educational progress using research-based practices. CTL creates capacity, both in our faculty and in our departments, to use assessment techniques that lead to improved teaching and learning. CTL will be helped in this effort by the new Assessment Team that has been created in the Office of Data Analytics.
