About the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning

Founded in 2005, the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning was established to advance teaching excellence, improve the use of instructional technologies and enhance student learning. The Center’s programs and services are available to all members of Grand View’s teaching community involved in the instructional process. In support of its mission, the Center has six strategic goals:

  • Provide a physical and intellectual space devoted to excellent and innovative teaching among Grand View instructors and Grand View students preparing for a teaching career.
  • Create a community of peers to deepen understanding of the teaching and learning processes by helping instructors gather, assess, and reflect on information about teaching and student learning.
  • Cultivate dialogue about teaching and learning through workshops, consultations, and other programs.
  • Support experimentation with innovative and emerging uses of instructional technology and methods; expand usage of current technologies.
  • Disseminate research and facilitate access to resources that support teaching and learning.
  • Support new full and part-time faculty members as they join our community.
