As the comprehensive center for faculty development activity at BCC, the Center for Teaching, Learning & Technology (CTLT) is committed to building an environment in which the Bronx Community College instructional staff explores innovative approaches to teaching and learning, establishes a common understanding of tested best practices and collaborates with colleagues to share their efforts. Formed through a merger of the Office of Instructional Technology (OIT) and the Center for Teaching Excellence, the CTLT is dedicated to supporting BCC's key academic goals: strengthening students' engagement with learning and increasing the numbers of students who persist and graduate. In pursuit of these goals, the CTLT fosters collaborative relationships across disciplines, across the BCC campus and across the University. CTLT programs may focus on digital technologies, assessment, disciplinary knowledge or on theories of learning. All such programs, like all CTLT activities, are centered on academic goals and the pursuit of effective pedagogy. Wherever possible, CTLT development programs are designed and led by faculty.
The Center also continues the work (begun by OIT) of building a strong technology infrastructure in BCC's instructional environments. As such, CTLT managers supervise a growing staff of support personnel assigned to maintain classroom and laboratory installations housed in academic departments and in various campus buildings, including the 15 new classrooms in North Hall and Library. Consolidating these support functions, the need for which has grown dramatically alongside the expansion of technological capacity over the past several years, is a key goal.
