The Center for Excellence and Innovation in Teaching (pronounced "seat") provides support and resources that enhance teaching and learning, by building on the experience and expertise of faculty and in a manner consistent with the University’s strategic goals and attention to data-driven continuous improvement.
• Teaching is a craft that should be honed as part of a community of practice and a culture of experimentation.
• Teaching objectives and coursework should be aligned with student learning outcomes and informed by research-based pedagogy. Students learn better when they are provided with multiple ways to engage with and process information and given choice in how to demonstrate what they have learned.
• Coursework should be thoroughly explained, appropriately challenging, and focus on higher-order thinking skills and high-impact practices.
• Teaching with technology should have a clear purpose and intent.
• The classroom should be a safe and inclusive space for open dialogue.
