The primary aim of the Plymouth State University Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning is to enable the academic success of all students by providing faculty with resources, opportunities, and strategies that support the teacher-scholar model and enhance student-centered learning in the classroom and beyond.
The center inspires continuous renewal and innovation in teaching and learning by helping faculty work together as a community of learners. Serving as a pedagogical hub for Plymouth State University, the center facilitates conversations, workshops, mentoring, and presentations on philosophies and practices of teaching and learning. Topics and foci may change based on faculty interest, student needs, and university goals but include syllabi and assignment development, learning and curriculum assessment, reflective practice, and course design, whether face to face or online.
The center creates informal and formal opportunities for faculty to build upon proven pedagogical experiences that encourage students to actively engage in their learning process. The center furthers faculty development in alignment with the teacher-scholar model at a regional, comprehensive university.
