Faculty Council on Teaching and Learning

Rapid change in the areas of teaching and learning at Princeton has inspired the formation of a new Council on Teaching and Learning, approved at the January 2014 meeting of the Princeton Faculty.  The chair of the Council works closely with the leadership of the Office of the Dean of the College and the McGraw Center to develop priorities and identify matters that require extended consideration.  The Council will begin its work by overseeing the University’s online course initiative, pursuant to the recommendations of the ad hoc Committee on On-Line Courses.  Among the other many areas that the Council might address are the following:
  • Innovative uses of instructional technology
  • Academic support for undergraduate students
  • Collaborative exercises and academic integrity
  • Classroom design
  • Accessibility of curricular pathways into certain disciplines
