CTL at Penn
The Center for Teaching and Learning supports teaching at the University of Pennsylvania. The Center works to help standing faculty, adjunct faculty and teaching assistants develop and improve their teaching; to promote valuable conversations about teaching among those groups; and to enhance the quality of education at Penn.
CTL is committed to helping instructors at Penn achieve excellence in the classroom and other venues where learning takes place. By fostering discussions about teaching, CTL encourages instructors to reflect on their own practices, to gain new insights, and to learn new ideas and strategies from each other.
For instructors seeking to better their teaching, the Center provides an array of workshops and individual consultations.
