The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) fosters a collaborative faculty community that builds on current best pedagogical practices across all disciplines and teaching modalities at Pratt: classroom, studio pedagogy, experiential learning, group-work, field-trips, and more. Through the guiding principles of community, reflection, and action the CTL aims to create an interdisciplinary and reflective learning environment to address important and often difficult issues.

The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SOTL) is a systematic inquiry into student learning and teaching practices. It advances the practice of teaching in higher education through rigorous research strategies to disseminate the findings publicly and broadly. An Experience of SOTL is a curation of our Faculty Learning Community projects, investigating inclusive classroom/studio practices, including reflection, analysis, qualitative and quantitative data collection, primary and secondary research, to introduce current SOTL within our Institute and model a path for anyone to engage in it.
