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.
The MCTC CTL’s Mission is: Enhancing student learning by developing the craft of teaching and creating communities of learners.
As the result of CTL programming, faculty in part will be able to
- motivate students to attain outcomes focused on 21st-century skills by engaging in meaningful assessments and innovative learning activities by using integrated course design
- integrate evidence-based teaching strategies to increase student success
- create communities of learners
- design inclusive face-to-face, blended, and online learning environments to meet the needs of diverse students
- access resources for continuous improvement of student-centered curriculum that is part of a larger context
