Teaching and Learning Center
The main purpose of the center is to promote excellence in teaching and learning in the sciences. Towards this end, we organize conversations on teaching and learning for faculty, postdoctoral scholars, and graduate students (in coordination with the campus Center for Teaching Excellence), share teaching innovations and discuss pressing issues in undergraduate science education.
We design programs to meet the needs of new faculty and new teaching assistants as they begin their teaching and research responsibilities. We encourage coordination among departmental GTA preparatory courses and other courses dealing with university teaching.
