Research scenes

The innovative work of the Fellows, affiliates, consultants, and students related to the CTL is only the first step. The critical step in ensuring that truly cutting-edge work becomes implemented, and ultimately institutionalized in a school or university is to disseminate that work so that others may learn from it. The CSUN Center for Teaching & Learning is responsible for multiple publications, to include CTL On the Cutting Edge, the T-CARE Newsletter, Research Briefs, and Annual Reports. In addition, the faculty in the College of Education are prolific in their dissemination of work conducted through the CTL, as well as their own research and classroom practices. We are proud to not only display their work here, but also the work of graduate students who have worked under the guidance and advisement of CTL faculty to conduct their own research on CTL-related issues.

Many of these students have focused their efforts on research and work related to the focus areas of the CTL, and are under the guidance and advisement of our CTL faculty.
