Welcome to the Center for Teaching and Learning

At the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL), we are committed to supporting and promoting effective teaching and learning across the Stanford community. We aim to create an environment that values all perspectives, experiences, and contributions, where instructors and learners can engage and learn through open, multi-sided dialogue. We promote and practice evidence-based equity strategies, recognize the assets that all learners bring to the classroom, and embrace humility to continuously learn about the cultures, histories, stories, and identities of those with whom we engage.

Land Acknowledgement

We acknowledge that Stanford University sits on the ancestral and unceded land of the Muwekma Ohlone Tribe. This land was, and continues to be, of great importance to the Ohlone people. Consistent with our values of community and diversity, we have a responsibility to honor and make visible the university’s relationship to Native peoples. You can learn more about the Muwekma Ohlone Tribe here: Muwekma Ohlone Tribe of the San Francisco Bay Area.

Inclusion Statement

The Center for Teaching and Learning is committed to honoring and upholding the value of all persons while working to create environments in which all students can learn and all educators can teach. We recognize that historically this has not always been the case because of factors such as structural racism, sexism, xenophobia, and ableism. We aim to promote evidence-based equity strategies that recognize the assets that all learners, instructors, and TAs bring to the learning environment. We advance marginalized voices through our programs and initiatives and embrace humility to continuously learn about the cultures, histories, stories, and identities of those with whom we engage.
