CTLO: Caltech University Teaching
Caltech's University Teaching efforts are housed within the Center for Teaching, Learning, & Outreach, which supports Caltech's multifaceted educational efforts, including undergraduate and graduate courses and curricula, formal and informal learning, and partnerships with K-12 teachers and students.
Our signature programs and services on University Teaching include:
- Large-scale programs engaging the entire campus community in evidence-based teaching, such as the annual fall Teaching Conference and TeachWeek, which includes open classes, guest speakers and workshops and rotates quarters (fall, winter, spring).
- Cohort programs for faculty, graduate students, postdocs, and others, such as the Faculty Summer Short Course and our credit-bearing course on Principles of University Teaching and Learning in STEM.
- Specialized consultations for Faculty and Teaching Assistants (undergraduates and graduates) on teaching methods, course design, instructional technology, and discipline-specific pedagogy.
- Opportunities for Students to grow as teachers, mentors, and leaders, including programs for Course Ombudspeople, and those pursuing the Certificates of Interest and Practice in University Teaching.

Five years later, though still small, CTLO has amassed a portfolio of several dozen programs that have had an outsized impact on education on campus.
