The Center for Teaching and Learning supports faculty members in their work as teacher-scholars by cultivating reflective practice and promoting the scholarship of teaching and learning. We assist faculty members in providing our students with a career-oriented, forward-looking education that prepares them to succeed in a global economy and an increasingly technological world. As part of NYIT’s identity as a global institution, we pay particular attention to how social, linguistic, and cultural diversity both affects and enriches the student experience. As part of NYIT’s identity as a partially virtual institution, we serve as a resource for best practices in skillful, appropriate, and effective uses of technology in education.
We build partnerships across campus, recognizing that together we can achieve goals we cannot reach individually. We strive to build a fully-engaged community—a community of scholars, a community of learners, a community of professionals working together to give our students the best education possible.
We provide an extensive range of services, including:
