Many of the biggest changes wrought by new networking tools are social—people have access to one another, and to one another's work, at a scale and ease unprecedented in history. This creates both challenges and opportunities for the academy. As an educational institution, we see an increasing number of students working collaboratively, whatever faculty expectations might be. As a research institution, collaboration is increasingly moving to large (and in some cases very large) inter-disciplinary and trans-institutional forms. The changes are clear; how we should respond is not.
The Center for Teaching Excellence supports and nurtures effective teaching and learning at NYU. The Center promotes an ongoing, university-wide discussion about teaching and learning matters, striving both to facilitate and contribute to that conversation, and provides practical resources to members of the NYU community to enhance their effectiveness in the classroom and laboratory.
