Inspiring a Community of Learning
Baylor University's Academy for Teaching & Learning (ATL) has a two-fold mission: to support and inspire a flourishing community of learning and to promote the integration of teaching, scholarship, collegiality, and service in a Christian environment.
Explore the breadth and depth of the ATL's programs and services that support your professional development.
Professors Talk Pedagogy presents discussions with great professors about pedagogy, curriculum, and learning in order to propel the "virtuous cycle" of teaching. As we frankly and critically investigate our teaching, we open new lines of inquiry, we engage in conversation with colleagues, and we attune to students' experiences - all of which improves our teaching and motivates ongoing investigation.
Our Guides include topics such as Preparing to Teach, Considering Students, Teaching Techniques, Assessing Student Learning and Teaching, and Teaching with Technology.
Resources include ATL Publications, the "Document Depot," the ATL Lending Library catalog, and more.
