About the Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence
Advancing innovation in business education that is relational, experiential, applied, and learner-focused (R.E.A.L.).
The Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence (CTLE) works in alignment with the mission and values of the Graziadio Business School and Pepperdine University. We accomplish this by facilitating a culture of learning assessment, evidence-based decisions in teaching and learning, and innovation in business education through blended learning.
This mission is achieved through the following:
- Collecting and analyzing data related to learning assurances
- Equipping faculty by new faculty training, faculty development events and workshops throughout the year
- Functioning as a research group in blended learning and business education
"The Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence enables educational innovation, so that business professionals obtain an education that is relational, experiential, applied, and learner-focused. Our goal is to use real-world technology and analytics, tightly integrated with the marketplace to help our faculty equip business practitioners to succeed."
