Check Out the Upcoming TLA Courses

Thursday, September 30, 2021

The Teaching/Learning Academy (TLA) — a community of practice — supports new professors, counselors and librarians as they develop Individualized Learning Plans, a fundamental phase of the tenure process designed to assist tenure candidates to expand and improve their professional practices and students’ learning. The goal of the TLA is to help tenure-track faculty members develop a reflective approach to their teaching that is anchored in the tenets of action research and the Essential Competencies of a Valencia Educator. The TLA provides support on pedagogy, course design, student development and professional portfolio development.

This fall, TLA is offering the following courses:
