Located in the Scarborough Library, the “intellectual heart of the campus,” the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) provides support to students and teachers alike.  The CTL offers students assistance with advising, writing, study skills, technology, and tutoring in any subject ranging from mathematics and to foreign languages and music.  For teachers, CTL provides pedagogical and technological classroom resources through trainings and consultations. CTL is the hub where excitement about learning permeates every corner, every hallway, every room, and every virtual space on campus.

Introducing CTL Digital Badges! new starting Summer 2021!

The CTL is proud to introduce a new microcredentialing system, often referred to as a system of digital badges, to encourage the continuous professional development of our teachers and staff and the successful and sustained learning of our students. When we support teachers and staff, we support students!! Badges reward active participation in your development! They are unique in that they pair the learning of new skills with the demonstration of them, recognizing your hard work to apply what you’ve learned. Badges are tangible evidence of your knowledge, skills and mastery and can be used as a testimonial of all three. Display your badges on/in your: 

The successful equation for badge acquisition is: knowledge + skills + demonstration of mastery 

Badges are increasingly popular in higher education because they move away from certification through attendance to certification through demonstrations of mastery. Simply, they encourage collaborationsharing, and connection! 

The CTL will begin issuing digital badges for Brightspace-specific training, use and collaboration and for completion of CTL’s own certified online instructor program. More badges to come! 

Start earning your badges today!! Find more information on our Digital Badges page!
