Engaged Learning 2.0:  A Conversation with Students


In The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL), we collaborate with faculty, professional staff, and students to design and implement engaging learning experiences. Faculty collaborations include: individual and group consultations, course and assignment design support, forums to connect and share with other faculty, customized workshops and seminars, innovation support through teaching grants, collaborative technology exploration, and design and implementation of Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) projects. The CTL Writing and Media Lab​ is a space where students can collaborate with faculty-nominated peers who are experienced in facilitating the writing and media creation process. CTL brings together student, staff, and faculty support in one location, in a dynamic, centralized environment where energetic exchange, deep learning, innovation, and intellectual community flourish.
