University of Alaska Fairbanks

Center for Teaching and Learning

We promote a culture of learning by supporting effective teaching practices, deeper learning for students, and university wide partnerships.

Programs and Services

The Center for Teaching and Learning is a collaborative space that unites students, faculty, and staff, harnessing our collective expertise to foster a vibrant exchange of knowledge, culture, and lived experiences. With a shared commitment to inquiry, discovery, and engagement, we foster innovative, interdisciplinary learning communities that inspire intellectual growth and transformative experiences.

For Faculty

We serve as a hub for evidence-based and inclusive teaching practices where faculty and instructors can learn from one another and the higher education community. Through collaboration, research, innovation, and leadership, the CTL is responsive to the teaching goals and priorities of faculty and academic units. We support all teaching roles from full-time, adjunct, or new faculty to postdocs and teaching assistants.

Our strategic initiatives promote pedagogical innovation and offer professional development opportunities for faculty to enhance faculty teaching skills, expand knowledge of effective instructional practices, and stay informed of emerging trends in education. We provide comprehensive support and resources for faculty to investigate the impact of teaching strategies, assess student learning outcomes, and contribute to the broader knowledge base of effective transformative pedagogies that contribute to the scholarship of teaching and learning. 

For Students

We support faculty to build educational programming that values the incredible strengths, diversity, and needs of all learners.  Within the CTL, you’ll find eCampus, the longest-running distance learning program in Alaska. Building on a rich history of innovation and commitment to excellence in online learning, we take pride in connecting students to transformative experiences in supportive virtual learning environments designed to fit any schedule.

Our online courses and fully online degrees (eCampus), dual enrollment program, and Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) offer learning experiences that promote access, curiosity, success, and well-being.
