We're located in Tide Hall, Bldg 23. TLA shares the east side of the building with Academic Personnel.
The purpose of the TLA is to provide faculty with support for exploring and implementing teaching, learning and assessment practices that enhance student learning. In consultation with its advisory committee and with input from faculty, staff, students and administrators across campus, the TLA addresses it goals of:
- helping promote excellence in teaching, effective assessment of learning, and faculty professional development at CSUMB.
- promoting teaching and professional development across the teaching and learning continuum, addressing the interests and needs of faculty in differing types of positions and faculty at different career stages.
- encouraging faculty contributions to the scholarship of teaching and learning, and to the emerging scholarship of assessment.
- helping promote the visibility of CSUMB’s accomplishments in teaching, learning, and assessment.
Please get in touch with us to share your suggestions for faculty development programs and activities the TLA might sponsor in the coming year.
