There is a proliferation of misinformation pertaining to how students learn and how best to teach. Students themselves often do not fully understand their own cognitive processes, typically relying on implicit assumptions and trial-and-error to learn new material. The good news is that research provides clear evidence pertaining to what works best in the classroom with respect to human motivation and learning.

Providing professional development opportunities to ensure constructive and active learning environments.
Leveraging the experience and wisdom of faculty leaders to promote teaching excellence.
Encouraging innovative research and scholarly publication on teaching and learning.
Identifying, developing, and sustaining enterprise level instructional technology systems.
Collaborating with campus constituents to assess programs, tools, and services that support their teaching and learning needs.
Contributing to the development of policies, initiatives, and campus-wide culture that supports excellence in teaching.
