Center for Teaching and Learning Staff (by department)

The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) supports faculty and graduate students through teaching observations, one-on-one consultations, new full- and  part-time faculty orientations, workshops, and course design programs. The CTL is also home to the Testing Center, Supplemental Instruction (SI) and Open Educational Resource (OER) programs. We are co-located on the 5th floor of Lucas Hall on North Campus with the UMSL eLearning instructional design team and Online Mentor Program.
