The ultimate goal of the CSTL is to enhance the quality of teaching and learning
campus-wide. To this end, the Center sponsors a number of services and programs
intended to stimulate, support, and reward pedagogical innovation, the use of instructional
technology, and the scholarship of teaching and learning. The efforts of the Center are facilitated
through work of two key committees –the Faculty Innovators and the Learning Management System Committee—and
three supporting offices: Media Services, the Office of Instructional Technology (OIT)
and the CSTL Faculty Associate. Together, they work with the Director to design and
implement strategies, initiatives, and programs that enhance teaching and learning.
In recent years, these efforts have enabled the CSTL to become a leading voice in the
scholarship of teaching and learning. The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning at Southeast
operates at two distinct, yet related, levels; one internal, the other external. Internally,
the scholarship of teaching and learning is supported and rewarded through the SoTL Fellows Program.
Externally, it is built upon the Center’s association with the Carnegie Academy for the Scholarship of
Teaching and Learning. An active leader in both domains, the CSTL focuses on one common goal:
building and maintaining a community of teacher-scholars among and across college campuses.
