Minneapolis Community & Technical College’s Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) demonstrates MCTC’s commitment to effective teaching and learning by fostering a climate of faculty development and professional growth. The CTL promotes interaction among peers about teaching and learning issues through peer consulting, mentoring, teaching circles, timely communications, and regular faculty development programming. The CTL leaders provide leadership for a variety of faculty development activities throughout the year, including New Faculty Orientation, Faculty Development Days, and the New Faculty Seminar. CTL leaders facilitate Faculty Development Input Sessions, offer a variety of services and programming, and are a resource to faculty wishing to grow their craft as instructors.
