Over the past several years, The University of New Mexico's Center for Teaching and Learning has grown to include several distinct centers: the Center for Academic Program Support (CAPS), Center for Teaching Excellence (CTE), the Graduate Resource Center (GRC), and the Center for Digital Learning (CDL).
“Although we all focus on the same goal – student learning – we do from within different programs,” said CTL Executive Director Aeron Haynie, who is also an associate professor of English.
To streamline the centers and make it easier for different populations to find the information and support they are looking for, the CTL has launched a new website: ctl.unm.edu where users can connect with support based on their roles as undergraduate or graduate student or instructor or faculty.
Resources for instructors include ideas for teaching, exploring workshops, funding applications, and teaching resources.
Resources for students include tutoring, writing reviews, workshops, and one-on-one consultations.
“There’s no need to remember the names of each sub-center,” Haynie said. “Although we are rebranding, we will continue to provide the same high-quality services as before.”
For students who are used to “CAPS,” she noted, the CAPS website will be around for a bit longer as the Center fully transitions to the new CTL site. In the meanwhile, Haynie encourages students and faculty to bookmark the new site, use it, and share it.
