The Center for Teaching and Learning Innovation supports the innovative pedagogical advancement of faculty for the purpose of fostering the professional and personal growth of each student. As a community committed to diversity and inclusion, we provide opportunities and resources for faculty to create meaningful learning experiences for our students within and beyond the classroom.

Our core values include:

  • Fostering collaborative efforts across and within campuses that improve teaching and learning.
  • Cultivating an institutional climate in which teaching excellence is promoted, recognized, and rewarded.
  • Sharing ideas, challenges, feedback, and resources as a collaborative community.
  • Promoting community in the classroom by providing resources and support for facilitation of an equitable, accessible learning environment for all students.

Our objectives are to:

  • Support the implementation and iteration of evidence-based pedagogical strategies to create significant learning experiences in a variety of modalities.
  • Promote inclusive, equity-centered course design and educational practices for student success.
  • Foster a trusting and supportive teaching community that encourages collaborative problem-solving, open sharing of ideas, and celebration of successes.
  • Develop and grow the visibility, inclusivity, and efficacy of CTLI programs and resources.
