UCLA’s Center for the Advancement of Teaching (CAT) provides multiple services, resources, and programs to enhance and support teaching excellence, innovation, and inclusivity. These include a grant program for curricular innovation; pedagogical development of faculty and graduate students via workshops and learning communities; strengthening of TA training campus-wide; educational technology software and lecture capture; classroom technology and furnishings; and analytics and assessment for curricular and institutional improvement efforts. CAT also works to enhance the valuation of teaching in the academic personnel process and foster a culture of effective teaching and learning as institutional priorities.
The Center for Education Innovation & Learning in the Sciences (CEILS) serves as a clearinghouse for the education tools and assessment resources instructors need to engage in effective, validated teaching practices that promote student learning, create inclusive and culturally-responsive classrooms, and retain students in Life and Physical Sciences majors. CEILS fosters the professional development and training of faculty who wish to incorporate evidence-based teaching approaches into their courses.
