The Teaching and Learning Commons (TLC) provides teaching support and resources for faculty, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows. TLC staff collaborate with campus partners to assist instructors in enhancing their teaching tools, whether on campus or online, to deepen student learning.

Faculty, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows may request assistance from the Teaching and Learning Commons staff. Some examples include course design, assessment consultations, infographics, videos, and classroom support.

Faculty may alternatively choose to collaborate with another faculty member through the Peer Support of Teaching Program. Some examples of the services provided through this program include discussions of teaching and learning, classroom observations, and course reviews
