A goal of the Center for Teaching and Learning is to assist faculty members in identifying the active learning strategies that are a good match for the discipline area in which they teach. The CTL provides helpful information and examples of specific pedagogical methods as they relate to specific disciplines.

Teaching Science
To learn the difference between the discovery and inquiry methods of teaching, read the Society for College Science Teachers' article, Don’t Confuse Inquiry and Discovery. The author maintains that college science teachers have a dual role; first, to interact with students "in ways that make us confident that they have a true understanding of the concepts we have chosen to include in our courses" and second to "instill in students the ability to ask meaningful questions and to find answers to questions on their own, using the investigative strategies common to the sciences."
