The Center for Teaching & Learning was established in the summer of 2014 by combining the staff and resources of the former Office of High-Impact Practices, Office of Instructional Technology, and Teaching Excellence Center. Previously, these three units each provided a portion of the professional development offerings at SFA and followed separate, yet related missions.


Now, working as one unit, the Center for Teaching & Learning provides a comprehensive and improved approach to faculty development aligned with a menu of services that enable our mission to support, strengthen, and promote teaching effectiveness and student learning.


The CTL provides:

  • oversight and support for distance education and online course development

  • technical support for Brightspace, Zoom, and related technologies

  • workshops and training for faculty using Brightspace

  • technical support for refreshed classrooms and classroom technology

  • other services listed on this website

The Center for Teaching & Learning is located on the second floor of Steen Library.
