Teaching & Leaning Center

Gateway's Teaching & Learning Center allows faculty to energize their teaching style by exploring new teaching pedagogy and examining new formats. Through this self-development, faculty will actively pursue the ways to provide students with improved classroom experiences so they can more deeply retain what they have learned.  Simply put, Gateway's TLC is an educational change agent focused on improving the both the faculty and student experience.

Course sequencing often covers content repeatedly.  By completing a thorough curriculum for a program, faculty are better able to develop course materials that incrementally increase difficulty and more thorough understanding of content by students.  Additionally, faculty will be able to better support one another in their programs, recruiting, and advisory meetings. 

Faculty can come together in a formal learning community to share best practices, problem solve, self-study topics, and seek advice and support amongst their peers. Learning communities typically meet one or two times a month to reach a common goal:  bettering the educational experience of Gateway’s students.
