Center for Teaching and Learning Mission
The Center for Teaching and Learning is a faculty-driven endeavor, dedicated to promoting, facilitating, and honoring excellence in teaching and learning.

In Support of the College Vision and Mission
The Center for Teaching and Learning supports the vision of Jefferson College to foster a "participative, innovative learning environment," where "student success is central." The CTL supports the mission of Jefferson College in its effort to provide a "quality college experience as it strives to meet the diverse needs of students and the community," and in its support of "superior teaching and service that foster a supportive learning environment" and "intellectual, social and personal growth."

CTL Goals
To support a community of learners in Arts & Sciences and Career Technical Education, the Faculty Coordinator of Teaching and Learning will:

  1. To support a community of learners across campus;
  2. To stimulate campus-wide conversation about teaching, learning, and assessment to share ideas and best practices; 
  3. To explore and disseminate research on pedagogical issues, best practices, assessment, and innovations in higher education that influence teaching and learning; 
  4. To develop and share approaches to actively engage students in the learning process.

The CTL is located in the Library, room 201.  This room holds computers for faculty use, a printer, and library holdings, and is open to faculty when not in formal use.  The CTL can also be reserved for academic meetings and events through Cindy Rossi,

Beginning in December 2016, the CTL will move to its temporary location in the Technology Center, Room 203.  It will remain there until the library renovation is complete.
