Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence
The Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence (CTLE) aims to advance the School's understanding of marketplace dynamics affecting working professionals given current and future economic challenges, while also enhancing teaching effectiveness in delivering business education that has relevant and practical value and affirms a higher purpose for business practice.
The Center advances its mission aligned with the mission and values of the Graziadio School and Pepperdine University by facilitating a culture of learning assessment, evidence-based decisions in teaching and learning and innovation in business education through blended learning.
Led by Dr. Charla Griffy-Brown, the Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence seeks to enable educational innovation, so that business professionals obtain an education that is relational, experiential, applied and learner focused.
Emerging technologies are reshaping higher education. Learn about new, effective teaching practices and how to keep your teaching methods relational, applied, experiential, and learner-focused.
Expectations and assumptions about modes of learning and communication have changed dramatically from the days of classroom-only instruction. The Center seeks to equip faculty with the resources they need to excel in today's classroom environment.
