Center for Teaching, Learning, and Scholarship

The Dean of Faculty works closely with the Provost, the Faculty Life and Development Committee, and the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Scholarship Advisory Board to establish professional learning opportunities and scholarship support for all faculty. This includes support for teaching and scholarship through ongoing workshops, activities, consultations, and resource-sharing across the University.


During the 2016-2017 academic year, Faculty came together to read, discuss and learn about one of six strategies for Facilitating Visual Literacy Learning of students over the course of the year. Faculty Fellows convened Study Circles which met 6 times throughout the year. Participants in the Study Circles created a Visual Literacy pedagogical project in one of their courses during the year and presented their work in October 2017.
