The Center for Teaching and Learning is dedicated to supporting the RIT teaching community. Our services are grounded in research, draw on established pedagogical approaches, promote innovation, and are deeply collaborative in nature.
Our goal is to support RIT faculties at all levels, novices to experts and everyone in between. CTL staff consult with faculty members, staff educators, graduate student instructors, as well as graduate and undergraduate teaching assistants. For this reason each consultation is customized, collaborative, and evidence based.
Customized: Consultants focus on questions specific to individual teaching contexts, needs, and timeframes. Consultants will help faculty to answer their questions by raising questions, providing feedback, and finding resources
Collaborative: Consultants emphasize faculty’s expertise and collaborate with them to find instructional strategies that are effective for their unique teaching context.
Evidence-based: Consultants draw on insights from research on teaching and learning and bring to the consultation data that will help faculties to make important decisions about teaching.
