The Center for Teaching, Research and Learning (CTRL) is American University's catalyst for inspiring, mentoring, and celebrating faculty in their roles as teachers and researchers. To fulfill this mission, CTRL collaborates with the campus community to create opportunities for faculty to re-envision and strengthen their teaching and research practices and to help prepare the next generation of college faculty.
The Teaching and Learning Resources Group organizes faculty orientations, conferences, and events on teaching and learning, and provides hands-on workshops as well as individual faculty consultations on pedagogy, instructional technology, online learning, and Open Educational Resources.
The Research Support Group provides advice on research design, data collection, and data analysis. They provide front-line support for use of the Virtual Computing Lab and the High Performance Computing Cluster, and support research intended for academic publication, research for an undergraduate and master's these, as well as doctoral dissertations.
