LEARNING AND TEACHING CENTER


The Schreyer Institute of Teaching Excellence at Penn State defines teaching excellence as 1) an academic process by which students are motivated to learn in ways that make a sustained, substantial, and positive influence on how they think, act, and feel; and 2) a process that elevates students to a level where they learn deeply and remarkably because of teacher attributes (outlined at the Institute website).

This webpage is designed to provide Highline instructors with both practical and theoretical information on the practice of teaching at Highline College and in higher education. This information is from the college faculty, professional literature (including the LTC book collection), and outside articles, readings, and reports.
