The mission of the Teaching+Learning Center (T+LC) is to promote excellence and innovation in teaching in all courses taught at the Mid City and Acadian campuses as well as the six sites of BRCC. The T+LC is dedicated to the support and advancement of research-based learning and teaching practices and the professional development of all members of the campus teaching community.
Professional consultations can be scheduled with our staff, who work collaboratively with faculty and the academic administration to develop and sustain a culture that values and rewards teaching, respects and supports individual differences among learners, and creates learning environments in which diverse students and instructors can excel. We are also available to conduct classroom observations, student focus-group assessments, as well as discuss the results and feedback of formative and summative assessments.
The mission is promoted through faculty development programming provided throughout the year to all members of the teaching community. Our focus is aimed at creating active learning, student-centered environments that allow our students to succeed.
