CTL Mission

The Center for Teaching and Learning supports JU faculty in their pursuit of innovative and creative teaching to improve student motivation and learning by providing resources and services that support teaching, research, and service endeavors.

Letter from the Director

August 15, 2016

Dear Colleagues,

It is my pleasure to serve as your Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL). CTL exists to support Jacksonville University's faculty in their scholarship of teaching and learning. I seek to lead a CTL that provides the tools and resources necessary for you to deliver your best teaching resulting in rich and meaningful learning experiences for our students.

 Like you, I am aware excellence in teaching already exists at JU. However, many faculty, departments, and colleges operate in isolation, something far too common in academia. I see opportunities for faculty to work across disciplines, lead in areas of expertise, and better utilize the intellectual capital readily available at JU. Together as the faculty of JU, we can share our academic accomplishments as thought leaders with our colleagues and our greater community.  

 As a member of the faculty, I know many are of us are often interested in supporting Community Service, Internships, Undergraduate Research, and Study Abroad in the context of our scholarship, teaching, and learning. I envision the CTL as a place where faculty can successfully collaborate, utilizing a wealth of expertise associated with our entire university community including the Board of Trustees, staff, and administration.

 I thank you for entrusting me with the leadership of the CTL. I look forward to working with you, my colleagues as we enrich the lives of our campus and community through scholarship, teaching, and learning.

The CTL provides many resources for JU faculty, including a library CTL Titles 1.10.12.xls, meeting space, instructional technologies, and individual and group training. 


Pass Card to CTL Access

 Did you know that FT faculty have access to the CTL at all times (that the library itself is open) and can gain entry via their JU-ID? Have you ever gotten here and found the CTL locked and you didn't bring your ID? Well now there is a FT Faculty pass at the front desk, so you can come on in no mattter where your JU-ID is.
