The UTA Center for Research on Teaching and Learning Excellence (CRTLE) engages faculty, graduate teaching assistants, and community partners in research and innovative, high impact practices to enhance teaching and learning (AAC&U, 2008). The Center’s mission embraces rigorous, evidence-based scholarship on teaching that will promote high levels of reasoning and meaningful learning among students. The CRTLE values the art and science of teaching and learning by bringing together scholars from all UTA disciplines to work on initiatives that integrate pedagogically sound practices, cognitive psychologies, digital and innovative technologies, assessment strategies, community engagement, and professional development. CRTLE supports all faculty and teaching assistants to achieve teaching excellence, advancing their students’ creativity, critical thinking, and logical reasoning through active inquiry-based, digital, and real-world learning experiences.
