Georgetown's Center for New Designs in Learning & Scholarship

What can CNDLS
do for you?

Teaching & Learning

Our team of experienced educators facilitates a broad-based program that promotes discovery, engagement, and diversity in an ever-expanding conception of learning.


Our mission is to bridge a historic gulf between pedagogy and technological advances. Today, CNDLS integrates a teaching and learning center with the latest educational technology.


How do we know our students are learning in the ways we hope and expect? We can help faculty formulate questions about student learning and develop plans for gathering evidence.
