Teaching and Learning Center

The Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) at Camden County College inspires and enables faculty to enhance teaching potential and effectiveness so that students are more likely to achieve their desired learning outcomes. The Teaching and Learning Center serves as a focal point for college-wide efforts to support the improvement of teaching and learning.

The Learning Resource Center:

  • Supports the continuing improvement of instruction by offering programs and resources related to the individual professional development needs of faculty.
  • Encourages teaching innovations.
  • Enhances faculty dialogue and promotes cooperation and information sharing across the disciplines.
  • Supports the integration of technology as a tool for improving teaching and learning.
  • Collaborates with other institutions, organizations, and individuals to exchange information and share resources.

Resources

The College Library purchases and maintains a wide assortment of materials related to teaching and learning in higher education. We welcome faculty input for purchases at any time. Formats include newspapers, books, journals, articles, CD’s, DVD’s and other electronic materials.

 

Workshop Schedule

Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) activities for the spring semester were designed to fall under one or several different professional development strands: assessment, curriculum, enrichment, mission, pedagogy, professional growth, and technology. Events are open to all full- and part-time faculty, administrators, and staff, although some may require advance registration.
