About CTL

The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) can help improve students’ learning by helping you with the implementation of teaching strategies and learning technology in your teaching practices. For example, we can consult on choosing the right and effective tools as well as active learning techniques to engage students in and outside of classrooms; offer tips on improving classroom discussions and team collaboration; and discuss various ways to assess your students’ learning

Mission

CTL’s mission is to promote Duke Kunshan University faculty excellence in teaching and learning. We foster communications, innovations and interdisciplinary collaborations among faculty, staff and teaching assistants.

We support openness — both in sharing what we know and what we do, and by helping faculty share their knowledge, teaching practices and passion with others.

We support our faculty as they challenge students to shape individual pathways and deepen their intellectual engagement over time, become rooted global citizens who make a difference both in professional and civic life.
