Colleagues discuss teaching problems and solutions at the New Faculty Retreat.

What is the Center for Teaching Excellence?

The Center is a community where:

  • We support long-term and short-term communities for faculty growth and inquiry (e.g., FLCs, FLINGs, workshops/seminars);

  • We support innovative teaching through projects, grants and awards (e.g., Top 25 project, grants, Knox award);

  • We bring to Miami the best of the scholarship of teaching and learning (e.g., Lilly Conference on College Teaching, Journal on Excellence in College Teaching);

  • We support departments and programs in their work to assess their effectiveness as educators in their discipline;

  • We work with other programs to enhance and celebrate teaching and learning at Miami.

Our mission is to embody and promote engagement with scholarly and reflective teaching practices to support the intellectual development of faculty and students as members of a diverse community.

What are people saying?

John Tagg lauds MU's Faculty Learning Communities in Change magazine for bringing faculty into new initiatives. He quotes Milt Cox, who says that "The ensuing sense of community and the scholarship of teaching and learning provided the social dynamics and the intellectual linkage between theory and practice for successful change management".
