About Us

Our mission is to promote transformative teaching through collaboration and reflection to ensure Sinclair's diverse students have varied opportunities for developing their potential as members of the global community.

“A master can tell you what he expects of you. A teacher, though, awakens your own expectations.”


The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) fosters and sustains faculty development in the pursuit of exemplary practices in teaching and learning. The CTL goals include:

  • Classroom: Encouraging innovation, classroom research, best practices, and discipline-specific and multi-disciplinary interaction.
  • Community: Creating an opportunity for students, faculty, administration and the community to dialogue about teaching and learning.
  • Teaching assessment and peer review: Teaching assessment and peer review to aid in the continuing development of faculty.
  • Mentoring: Mentoring faculty to build learning communities and relationships between colleagues.
  • Resources: Providing resources to support teaching and learning strategies.
  • Advocacy: Promoting and advocating for teaching excellence.
