The Teaching and Learning Committee (TLC) promotes student learning and achievement by sustaining faculty in their development as teachers. The TLC encourages critical reflection, pedagogical experimentation, and innovation in teaching. It fosters an informed and collaborative dialogue among faculty on matters relating to teaching, learning, and assessment by:
- sponsoring presentations, discussions, and workshops on issues related to these topics
- reviewing grants for curriculum development and teaching innovation
- sponsoring a faculty auditing program
- offering help with assessment
- holding open houses to encourage faculty discussion
- maintaining this website.
The TLC includes six faculty members, two from each division (at least one of whom is tenured), appointed to two‐year staggered terms. It also includes the Director of Institutional Research, the Director of Instructional Services, the Director of College Writing/Assistant Director of College Writing, and the Associate Dean as ex-officio members.
