The Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning (FCTL) was established in 2019 as part of the UMB strategic planning process. The FCTL's mission is to advance evidence-based teaching, learning, and evaluation practices throughout the University community. As a central resource for all UMB schools, the center provides support and resources for faculty to enhance their teaching and improve student learning outcomes. The center offers consultations, course design, professional coaching, and media production services, and facilitates the multidisciplinary Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) and Online Teaching Community (OTC) programs. The FCTL is a thriving hub of teaching excellence, offering a wide range of programs, services, and resources, and actively contributing to the scholarship of teaching and learning.
