The Center for the Enhancement of Teaching & Learning supports faculty as they seek to infuse UC classrooms with innovative and effective pedagogical approaches to maximize student learning by:
- promoting research-based best practices;
- providing consultations on the programmatic, curricular, course, and individual level;
- advancing university initiatives in student learning;
- supporting diversity and inclusion; and
- inspiring, invigorating, and empowering faculty dedicated to the success of their students.
Our areas of expertise and focus include: classroom pedagogy and innovation, assessment, scholarship of teaching and learning, course design, and gateway instruction.
