New Services Help Colleges Develop a Culture of Teaching and Learning Excellence

Based on our 15 years of experience working with community colleges on student-centered and equity-based systems design, we can help colleges develop a culture of teaching and learning excellence by engaging full-time and adjunct faculty in leadership and professional learning roles that advance pedagogy; implementing inclusive, evidence-based, high-impact, culturally responsive practices; and providing opportunities for action research, reflection, and renewal.

ATD’s new Teaching and Learning Capacity Building Services helps colleges organize and go beyond narrow programmatic reforms to transforming teaching and learning in every classroom. We deliver this work centrally within a faculty development unit, such as a Center for Teaching Excellence, to ensure colleges provide focused and sustainable classroom-based reform. Available as a one- or three-year engagement.

Our experienced team will work with colleges to build a vibrant culture of teaching and learning excellence on campuses by:

  • Sharing opportunities for improving faculty classroom practice and student learning
  • Evaluating the capacity of the faculty development center to lead strategic teaching and learning efforts
  • Deepening your college’s understanding of equity and equity-based teaching and learning
  • Developing a strategic teaching and learning action plan by envisioning the ideal student academic experience
  • Strengthening alignment between faculty hiring practices, professional development offerings, and policies for faculty evaluation, retention, and promotion
  • Creating a culture that strives for continuous improvement and excellence in teaching and learning
