Launched in 2013, the CTL’s mission is to support conversations about teaching and learning across the campus of Baruch College. The CTL works with academic departments across the Zicklin School of Business, the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences, and the Marxe School of Public Affairs to develop programming to support faculty in and outside the classroom. The CTL works closely with faculty, administrators, and other academic service units to create opportunities for members of the Baruch community to reflect upon pedagogical challenges and opportunities.
What we do
The Center for Teaching and Learning sponsors programs and initiatives to support inquiry into teaching and learning. These range from ongoing educational technology projects (like Blogs@Baruch and VOCAT), to the CTL Hybrid Faculty Fellows program, to initiatives to promote the development of ZTC and OER courses. The CTL often collaborates with the Baruch Computing and Technology Center to make sure that faculty and students have the support they need to meet the demands of teaching and learning with technology.
