What we do at CTL

We tutor students Although many teaching principles and practices can be conveyed through workshops and articles, there is no substitute for individual discussion with a CTL staff member about one’s teaching style, classroom goals, and interaction with faculty, teaching fellows and students. The CTL routinely assists members of the RIT community with course design, section planning, effective use of technology, assignment development, mid-semester classroom observations and feedback, interpreting student evaluations, and addressing challenges in the classroom.
