Teaching and Learning Center

  • Mission

    The Teaching and Learning Center’s mission is to build a welcoming community of educators focused on identifying and sharing best practices for student success.  The TLC will provide a supportive atmosphere where the campus community can explore instructional methods and techniques as well as new technologies.



    1. Investigate best practices in teaching, which are designed to increase student success, retention and completion.
    2. Design and implement events, activities, seminars and other associated learning opportunities to present information and training to educators in support of student success, retention and completion.
    3. Provide an environment where educators can explore and learn new technologies, techniques, and instructional methods, which will help students appropriately engage in the learning process.
