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.

Marquette University's Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) provides faculty, instructors, teaching assistants, and staff with opportunities to improve their instruction and develop their classroom pedagogies. All evaluations and support of educators are intended to be formative and are kept confidential within the CTL. This protection includes participation in CTL programs, consultations, and communication.

One-on-one Consultations

CTL also offers 1:1 support for all faculty and Teaching Assistants to discuss any aspect of your teaching and goals. We treat every consultation as private, so please do reach out to us via email to set up an appointment.
