Institute for Learning-Centered Teaching

The MCC Institute for Learning-Centered Teaching was planned by the Office of Professional and Instructional Development (OPID) and will be offered through the Teaching, Learning, and Reflection Center (TLRC). This Institute, fully funded by the College, will be offered over a one-year period, with the semester focusing on strategies for improving teaching and learning, and the spring semester focusing on reflective practice.

The program uses a collaborative approach to model various teaching techniques and create a collegial environment. It will expand your knowledge in a variety of teaching areas including: refining classroom management techniques, enlivening lectures, using classroom assessment techniques, examining student learning outcomes, reflecting on cultural diversity in the classroom, using writing to enhance student learning, and understanding the evaluation process.

The MCC Institute for Learning-Centered Teaching is an outstanding opportunity for faculty to:

  • Develop a supportive network of colleagues
  • Experience and apply classroom strategies
  • Reflect on our primary mission of teaching and learning
  • Share successes and resolve challenges
  • Use Blackboard technology as a tool for learning
  • Reflect on the community in "community" college

Participants are expected to attend all sessions unless there are extenuating circumstances.

If you have any questions regarding the program, please contact Phyllis Gleason at ext. 3729 or email at
