Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning

From the Director

The Center for Teaching and Learning (CETL) is a full fledged center established primarily for developing and implementing quality teaching practices for the faculty and staff at ULAB. As a leader in Liberal Arts education, we must promote and uphold a culture where excellence is celebrated and professional growth ensured in all aspects of teaching, learning and research. The values that ULAB stands for, particularly those that encourage innovation, pursuit of excellence and love of life-long learning, partly define our role. In order to achieve those values we need to have a clear understanding of what good teaching practice means, without which quality education cannot be ensured. CETL hopes to put in place a well-structured and transparent standard for teaching practice. One of the guiding principles of ULAB that directly speaks to a path of excellence in teaching is active learning. In order to enhance the core competencies of our faculty and staff, CETL will be instrumental in creating a learning ecology that facilitates Liberal Arts education. If you are practitioner in any of the disciplines taught at ULAB, this Center is for you. We hope to walk with you on the path to professional excellence.

Mission statement

The main goal of the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning is to create a professional environment at ULAB that complies with the UGC directives on Quality Assurance. CETL will be responsible for developing and maintaining a Professional Development Program (PDP) for faculty and staff. The Center will also forge links with teaching and learning centers with international repute with a view to establishing exchange programs and research partnership. CETL’s objective is to enhance quality through establishing and maintaining excellence in all of our activities: teaching, learning, and research.
