About the CTL


The mission of the Brooklyn College Roberta S. Matthews Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) is to foster an outstanding educational experience for all students by providing faculty with resources for effective teaching and learning. As a forum for the thoughtful and respectful exchange of ideas and practices, the CTL encourages high-impact learning and active engagement with students. It supports curricular development, pedagogical innovation, program improvement, planning, assessment, and a campus-wide culture focused on excellence in teaching, through an emphasis on self-reflection among the teaching faculty.
