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.


The landscape of higher education is changing, and we are engaged in advanced research on the pedagogical conditions and environments that best help students learn.
