Welcome to the Center for Teaching & Learning at Pratt Institute
The CTL's Guiding Values are
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 hand-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.
