Teaching Support

Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence

"Our goal is to use real-world technology and analytics, tightly integrated with the marketplace to help our faculty equip business practitioners to succeed."
Mark Mallinger, PhD - Emeritus Professor of Applied Behavioral Science

Transformational Learning Model

Using qualitative research the Center was able to gather data from twenty-three high-performing faculty at the Graziadio School regarding the techniques they use to create meaningful learning experiences in the classroom. Relying on focus groups and 1-on-1 interviews the Center was able to determine a set of actions that result in advancing student development and appreciation for the learning process.
