    Topic: Yes, We DO Care About Teaching: Building a 21st Century Teaching Center at UCSC
    {jody-greene-300.jpg} {UCSC Learning Center.jpg}
    In July of 2016, UCSC launched a new teaching center, the Center for Innovations in Teaching and Learning (CITL). This cutting-edge center is designed to revitalize UCSC’s tradition of excellence in teaching through supporting faculty and graduate students with the resources and training to teach the students we have now with the tools available to us in the new millennium. These tools include a vast body of new research on effective teaching and learning at the post-secondary level; a wide range of educational technologies that can enhance student learning both in the classroom and beyond; and a primary commitment to equity and excellence for the diverse and vibrant student population attending UCSC in its second half-century.

    Our members gather monthly, September through May inclusive, except in December, usually on the third Sunday from 10 a.m. to noon in the Colleges Nine and Ten Multipurpose Room to socialize, conduct business, and hear a speaker, often a UCSC professor. We greet, meet, and eat (fruit or cake, and coffee or tea), and interact with a speaker of note. At the first meeting of the year after the summer break, in September, (At Porter College Dining Hall September only) in lieu of hearing from a speaker, we find out about and sign-up for interest groups.
