Teaching and Learning



Teaching and Learning are the core functions of our institutions, but research reveals that most colleges’ collective reform efforts have taken place outside of the classroom.


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 your college to build a vibrant culture of teaching and learning excellence on your campus 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


Our comprehensive approach helps colleges build and strengthen a culture of teaching and learning excellence. Our experience team helps your college:

  • Implement research-based instructional practices
  • Foster faculty leadership in student success efforts 
  • Create and sustain effective professional development programs
  • Create or strengthen its Center for Teaching & Learning as a robust hub of faculty innovation, peer learning, and support
  • Use data to improve educational practice in the classroom
  • Identify ways faculty can support students’ non-academic needs as the first point of contact
  • Support professional learning and engagement for adjunct faculty
  • Create the structure and culture to support continuous improvement centered on the students you serve
  • Develop a prioritized action plan for your teaching-focused projects (e.g., OER, guided pathways, culturally responsive practices, developmental education reform)
