Director’s Words

The Teaching and Learning Center has been established to encourage the best teaching practices here at PSU to support faculty development and student learning. When students believe that success is possible, they will try. The process of learning is about making sense of our individual experiences which we have. That is why it is a part of the faculty members’ responsibilities to encourage them to be successful, to promote positive thinking, and help our students grow academically in their specific fields. So, our first priority in our class is to help our students believe in themselves and their ability to learn. I would like to encourage the students to take ownership of their learning and develop the skills they need to be leaders in their areas of specializations. I would like to encourage all faculty members to foster innovative teaching strategies in the classroom and share those ideas with others. The TLC looks forward to hearing about these innovative teaching strategies. For example the use of mental imagery in the classroom no matter what the subject is.
