Creativity is an endless journey

Our Focus

Our mission is to serve the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, by advancing teaching excellence as a direct means of facilitating learning excellence.

We focus on the co-creation of value by instructors and students.

This value is accomplished through the support of multiple pedagogies that integrate content with the learning process (e.g., presentation, discussion, co-learning, critical thinking, experiential learning, and reflective practice).

Experience Learning

Experience Learning logoExperience Learning is a university-wide initiative that seeks to enhance students’ development and educational experiences by providing more opportunities for experiential learning.

Experiential learning is an approach to education that emphasizes engaged student learning through direct experience and intense reflection to increase knowledge, acquire lifelong learning and problem-solving skills, and elucidate values.

The Teaching and Learning Center aids university faculty in developing courses that utilize and emphasize experiential learning in creative ways.
