LEARN Center

"Enhancing student learning through the ongoing development of faculty and staff"

The  Learning  Enhancement,  Assessment and  Research  Network (LEARN) Center was established in 1998 to assist faculty and academic teaching staff in their ongoing work to better serve our students. Designed and directed by faculty and academic teaching staff, the LEARN Center provides a variety of programs, services, and resources that invite colleagues to learn from experts, explore important issues, share instructional ideas, examine research relevant to teaching and student learning, and develop relationships with colleagues from across campus. While the emphasis of the LEARN Center is on teaching and learning, we also seek to provide services relevant to enhancing research and service activities.

Since its inception, LEARN Center programming has resulted in more than 5,000 contacts with the university's approximately 400 faculty and full-time instructional staff, engaging them in more than 13,700 hours of instructional/professional development.
