The Center for Teaching & Learning (CTL) collaborates with faculty and graduate students to cultivate teaching that is inclusive, centered on student learning, and guided by research. We offer individualized consultations, workshops, seminars, and institutes designed to promote critical reflection and experimentation in teaching and support core initiatives across the University, such as the Hub, BU’s innovative new general education curriculum. We provide guidance on flipping large-enrollment courses, offer strategies to implement problem-based learning in STEM fields, and much more.
If you are a faculty member or graduate student, we can help you elevate your teaching expertise through sharing in knowledge, skills, and a supportive community of interdisciplinary peer educators. Our programming invites you to explore the importance of learning outcomes, construct course level assessments, employ effective grading strategies, experiment with active learning strategies, interact with teaching technologies, evaluate and transform your syllabus, and help you become a reflective teacher-scholar in ways grounded in research-based practices. Join our mailing list to keep up-to-date on our latest programs.
These stories come from across the university, and we welcome YOURS!

Successful Revision of a Philosophy Course for BU Hub with CTL’s Course Development Institute
After teaching a course on Indian philosophy for Boston University’s College of Arts & Sciences, Lecturer Amod Lele revised the course for the new BU Hub general education requirements with the help of the Center for Teaching & Learning’s Course Development Institute. Not only was the course readily approved for the BU Hub; it has become a more dynamic and engaging experience for Amod and the students.
