The Center for Teaching and 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, we advocate innovative teaching and the use of student-centered technology while partnering with faculty as they prepare Marquette students to be agents of change for a global community.

News and Events

Dialogical Pedagogy Seminar

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2020, from 9am to 10:15am in Raynor Library, 330B
Target audience:  
Newer faculty and graduate students.
This session will provide both reflective and practical lenses through which current and future faculty can consider their own pedagogical mindsets and practices. The seminar will be grounded in six guiding principles of dialogue from educator and philosopher Paulo Freire. As such, it will take a big picture view of some life-giving and foundational aspects of dialogue to consider both in the classroom and beyond its walls with a special emphasis on the ways that dialogical principles can shape an educator’s understanding of their vocation. The seminar will also include tailored discussion about participants' own questions and ideas about dialogue in the classroom.
Register today.


Join us for the kickoff of a faculty book club series focusing on a wide range of experiences and identities using current literature. This will hopefully lead to other recommendations and other diverse voices into the future. Follow header link to see full list of books.
Purpose: Allow opportunities to meet other Marquette faculty and others who instruct students, read recent literature with cultural meaning, and build community membership across campus.
Meetings will be held Fridays from Noon-1:15.
Lunch will be served. Register today.
