Who We Are

Our Mission

The Center for Teaching and Learning is a campus-wide resource that advances SAIC’s broader learning goals and inspires imaginative pedagogical practices. We believe that teaching and learning are not ready-made activities; instead, both require reflection and revision. To this end, the CTL works alongside institutional colleagues, dialogues with community stakeholders, and engages educational leaders across the globe to offer faculty formative support in all phases of their instruction. Our outreach, thematic programming, and structured services model a collaborative and compassionate approach to interdisciplinary educational and professional development. By centering our faculty’s needs and interests, we strive to make art and design education’s transformative potential a reality.
