Teaching & Learning Resources
Research has demonstrated that engaging students in the learning process increases their attention and focus, motivates them to practice higher-level critical thinking skills, and promotes meaningful learning experiences. Instructors who adopt a student-centered approach to instruction increase opportunities for student engagement, which then helps everyone more successfully achieve the course’s learning objectives.
The Kutztown University Center for the Enhancement of Teaching (CET) and Office of Distance Education (ODE) help facilitate the involvement of faculty in a dialogue regarding innovative teaching and learning. Each offers programs, activities, and resources to support excellent teaching throughout the university.
