Centers for Teaching and Learning

Stanford’s Center for Teaching and Learning 

The goals of the Stanford Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) closely align with ASEE, to promote excellence in teaching and education throughout Stanford. They primarily achieve this by providing in person workshops at Stanford, which can be found on their Teaching Commons site, along with providing a myriad of literature aimed at Professors, TAs, and students. Stanford CTL also provides course support by running course design workshops and administering student evaluations. We’ve highlighted some pages from the Teaching Commons site that highlight the resources provided by Stanford CTL.
