Abstract

Many higher education institutions have a center for teaching andlearning whose mission is to advance teaching excellence, fosterinnovation, and translate educational research into practice. However,those centers may be underutilized by the faculty and schools they serve.This poster will report recommendations coming from an NSF-fundedproject titled “The Role of Centers for Teaching and Learning inImprovement of Undergraduate Engineering Education.” The two-dayCTL/Engineering Education workshop brought together teaching centerdirectors, engineering faculty, and engineering school administrators.The workshop agenda was to outline strategies for enhancingpartnerships between teaching centers and schools of engineering toimprove undergraduate engineering education. This poster will presentinsights and strategies gained from the workshop, an overview of thediscussion strands and recommendations and implications for policy,practice, and future research.
