The Center for Teaching & Learning serves as a catalyst for promoting a culture of pedagogical excellence at Marquette University.

Rooted in Ignatian pedagogy and the scholarship of teaching and learning, the Center for Teaching & Learning is committed to the professional development of the campus teaching community. We work with faculty to support sound pedagogical practice while respecting individual learning differences, and help all instructors create a learning environment where all teachers and learners can succeed and flourish.  Read more about our services offered...
