Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL)

Sandra Beyda-Lorie, Ph.D., Executive Director

The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) promotes a community of shared excellence and innovation focused on the enhancement of student learning. The CTL offers guidance and support for faculty on instructional design and teaching methods appropriate for face-to-face, hybrid, remote and online learning environments. CTL professionals are dedicated to working with instructors, departments and programs to generate new ideas, engage in critical reflection, share best practices, and implement equity-minded and inclusive teaching approaches.

The CTL provides workshops, educational software training, instructional design templates, guidance documents and other resources, as well as individual consultations for faculty members requesting our services. Non-credit, professional development courses for faculty teaching in the virtual environment, and support for the use of the learning management system, Desire2Learn, is also offered.
