Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence

The Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence (CTLE) was created with the vision of fostering a community of scholarly teachers focused on scholarship and student success.

With this vision in mind, the CTLE works to fulfill its mission to support Syracuse University instructors as they sustainably integrate pedagogical best practices; design and deliver effective, inclusive courses; and engage in the scholarship of teaching and learning.

The Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence is committed to the support, growth, and collaboration with faculty at Syracuse University by offering a variety of services to promote effective and innovative teaching. Services include: individual consultations; classroom observations and feedback sessions; syllabus reviews; working with colleges, schools, and departments to create development workshops; assistance in reviewing and responding to student feedback; and answering all other general teaching questions.

The CTLE uses data on student outcomes and program effectiveness to inform decision-making and strategy, and has established a close relationship with the Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Assessment to measure and track the success of the CTLE’s programs and initiatives.
