Center for Teaching, Learning, and Leadership

The Center for Teaching, Learning, and Leadership supports the University of North Georgia’s commitment to excellence in teaching and learning, as well as the professional development of our faculty.

 

The Center for Teaching, Learning, and Leadership (CTLL) supports the University of North Georgia’s commitment to “academic excellence in a student-focused environment.”  Through our programs and outreach, CTLL seeks to foster our community of scholar teachers as they pursue research-based experimentation in the design and implementation significant educational experiences. CTLL programs enhance teaching excellence, instructional innovation, the scholarship of teaching and learning, effective academic leadership, and enriched educational environments through such opportunities as service-learning. CTLL encourages, recognizes, and rewards demonstrated excellence in teaching.

The goals of the CTLL are:

  • to facilitate faculty dialogue related to effective teaching practices and to the development of partnerships within and across disciplines and academic institutions
  • to provide on-going training and support in the development, review, and implementation of teaching methods, assessment practices, curricular innovation, and current technologies
  • to maintain a collection of teaching resources including current professional literature, videos, technological tools, and a faculty-network database
  • to disseminate information about professional development opportunities, materials, and grants through a variety of media
  • to coordinate New Faculty Orientation, the New Faculty Institute, and a mentoring program
  • to assist in addressing institutional issues and problems affecting the teaching-learning climate
  • to serve as an advocate for teaching-related academic initiatives
  • to support the development of faculty making the transition to academic leadership roles

The Center for Teaching, Learning, and Leadership never evaluates teachers and never shares information about individual teachers with those who do evaluate. It vigorously protects the confidentiality of all consultations with faculty and staff members. The Center does not release the names of anyone who seeks personal consultation nor information about a consultation or even about the existence of a consultation. Information collected through consultation is only shared with the individual being consulted.
