Goals and Objectives
What we offer
Book Discussion Groups
Each semester, members of the T+LC Faculty Fellows lead book discussion groups focused on topics surrounding teaching and learning. The selected books range from classics in the world of pedagogy to new publications by up and coming leaders and influencers in higher education. At the beginning of every semester, information will be sent to faculty and staff detailing the options for that term and a registration form. For more information on our current selections, or to register for an upcoming discussion group, please visit the Book Discussion Groups webpage.
Innovative Teaching Grants
The Teaching and Learning Center offers grants for faculty research studies related to teaching, and for faculty innovation projects leading to innovative teaching strategies. These focused studies are intended to advance scholarship related to teaching and learning and the adoption of innovative pedagogies in the classroom. Each spring a call for proposals is sent to faculty members with necessary information and dates for the current year. Please see the Innovative Teaching Grants Program description for more information.
