Center for Advancing Teaching and Learning (CATL)

The Center for Advancing Teaching and Learning (CATL) supports improvement of teaching and student learning at UWL. Our primary goal is to help instructors improve the design and implementation of instructional materials, teaching practices, and assessment of student learning. CATL provides opportunities for instructors to improve their practice through workshops, conferences, seminars, training courses, programs, grant projects, and individual consultation.

CATL programs and services are based on the premise that teaching, like other forms of scholarship, is complex intellectual work. CATL encourages a spirit of inquiry in which instructors can refine their current practice, explore alternative approaches and work together on improvement of student learning and success.
