Teaching and learning are central to the mission of Middlebury College.

Middlebury College is a residential learning community that educates students within the tradition of the liberal arts. We emphasize reflection, discussion, and intensive interactions between students and faculty members. We believe that teaching is a craft, a set of skills and approaches that can continually be refreshed and enhanced.

CTLR is here to work with all faculty to advance their teaching and scholarship through

  • Development Opportunities including annual workshop series and retreats, communities of practice, and other opportunities for mentoring and collaboration.
     
  • Teaching Resources  such as course-based tutors, shared teaching resources, and a list of programs at Middlebury that support teaching.
     
  • Funding available through Middlebury to support teaching, research and scholarship. OGSP supports external funding opportunities.
     
  • Research Support for working with research assistants is available for all disciplines, as well as programming supporting scholarship.

  • Center for Community Engagement AOE Funding Rolling Deadline

    Date: Thursday, June 30, 2022
    Time: All Day Event
    Location:
    CCE's Academic Outreach Endowment (AOE) funds both faculty and student community-connected course projects up to $4,000. Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis.  Funding supports community-connected teaching, learning, and research across all disciplines. Examples of these approaches include community-based learning, project-based learning (when there is a direct community connection), public scholarship, participatory action research or service-learning. Activities should cultivate student’s academic and civic knowledge and skills, as well as values and commitments, through direct engagement with communities and groups working to address a particular issue (e.g. systemic injustice, climate change, etc.). See go.middlebury.edu/aoe for additional details and a link to apply.
