The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) is dedicated to serving as a catalyst to foster the exploration of teaching and learning opportunities at Baruch College. Working in collaboration with other academic service units, the CTL focuses on facilitating the development and adaptation of various teaching and learning models, including hybrid/online delivery modes. The CTL brings together faculty from various disciplines to reflect upon pedagogical opportunities and the enabling role of technology in education.
The CTL offers a variety of faculty development opportunities. The CTL hosts informal workshops and structured seminars that focus on teaching practices, course/assignment design, and educational technologies. CTL staff are also available for one-on-one consultations.
If you’d like to discuss your course or other faculty development opportunities with a CTL staff member, you can drop by the CTL, give us a call (646-312-1565), or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Teaching and Learning at Baruch
Baruch College has a rich tradition of faculty development, including programs that have been led by the Bernard L. Schwartz Communication Institute and the Writing Center for the last fifteen years. The CTL builds upon this tradition, experience, and body of knowledge to augment existing structures and forge new paths for supporting faculty and students as the College strives to attain the goals articulated in its Strategic Plans. The Center for Teaching and Learning reports to the Office of the Associate Provost, Dennis Slavin, and is supported by an Advisory Board drawn from across the community.
The Center for Teaching and Learning works with various departments and offices throughout Baruch College to create customized sites and web projects. Below are a few examples of current and past CTL collaborations:
The Zicklin Online Learning and Evaluation program supports experimental design of assessments of hybrid and online teaching in the Zicklin School of Business.
Writing-Great Works is an informative portal for the first year sequence of English department courses taken by every Baruch student. The site includes resources for students, faculty, and the Baruch community about First-Year Writing and Great Works of Literature.
The Annotation Project is a set of course sites where students collaboratively annotated texts to help explain meanings, establish personal connections, and explore translation techniques.
