The Center for Advancing Teaching and Learning Through Research was established to support the Northeastern University community in creating opportunities for lasting learning. To realize this goal, the Center takes a multi-pronged, research- based approach to working with faculty and administrators in the classroom, through departmental programs or university-wide initiatives. Your colleagues at the Center are available to discuss teaching and learning in your courses, in your department or in your college and to work with you to achieve the learning goals and outcomes that are important to you and your students. Our services range from one-on-one consultations to group programs (workshops and seminars), consultations on the development of courses and programs to providing guidance on their assessment. Furthermore, and just as importantly, we offer a venue for collaborating with you on research and grants focused on teaching and learning in your disciplines.
While our website is aimed at giving you a brief introduction to the different ways in which we can work together, it is by no means comprehensive. In part, this is because our programs and services are always evolving to meet faculty needs, and the relationships that we establish with you will allow us to customize our support specifically for your needs. At the core, we are dedicated to working with you as you develop new courses or programs and reflect on and revise existing ones. Please view the website as a resource for you to start to think about ways in which you can evolve your teaching and as an invitation to set up a meeting to discuss ways in which we can work together. Our goal is to provide efficient and effective ways for faculty and administrators to develop courses and programs that will provide our future leaders with an opportunity to not only learn content but also a way to articulate and use that knowledge flexibly to make meaningful contributions.
