The Teaching and Learning Center at CCNY

The TLC’s focus is on pedagogy. We want to provide best practices and to be a responsible voice for those instructors looking for advice about how to handle their classroom and course. The Teaching and Learning Center fosters a culture of collaborative learning, pedagogical inquiry, and community engagement. Through workshops, seminars, and consultations, we encourage culturally sensitive, community engaged, project based learning in every discipline. We support the pedagogic use of CUNY academic technology, including the Academic CommonsOffice 365Dropbox, and Blackboard. We collaborate with the campus leaders of the Open Educational Resources initiative and the Campus Engagement Network.
