Welcome to the Center for Teaching & Learning at Pratt Institute
The CTL's Guiding Values are
Community Reflection Action
The Center for Teaching and Learning fosters a collaborative faculty community that builds on best pedagogical practices across all disciplines and teaching modalities at Pratt: classroom and studio pedagogy, online and hybrid formats, experiential hands-on learning, and more. The Center aims to create an interdisciplinary, resilient, and reflective learning environment to address the urgency of the ‘now’, ranging from discussing difficult issues in a diverse classroom to larger social and cultural complexities of our times.
Mission and Community Standards: In order to foster faculty collaborations built on a shared understanding of respect, we have established a set of community standards that we expect all CTL members and participants to follow.
Week-by-Week Support: Weeks 1-5

The CTL is happy to announce that eleven members of the Pratt community completed the Florida State University College Student Wellbeing, Trauma & Resilience Certification in the Spring and Summer of 2023.
