About the CTL
The Center for Teaching and Learning is open to all UAB faculty and is focused on supporting excellence in teaching across the UAB campus. Research shows that effective teaching by University faculty leads to higher levels of student success and higher rates of student recruitment and retention. Through CTL workshops, individual and group faculty consultations, and school and departmental presentations, the CTL promotes student learning by helping UAB faculty to develop the knowledge and skills to become better teachers.
The Center also plays a key role in supporting the University’s ongoing accreditation efforts and the Quality Enhancement Plan. The QEP theme, “Learning in a Team Environment” is focused on increasing the use of effective team-learning strategies in UAB classrooms.
