  • Creating a culture of commitment to learner-centered practices, reflection about teaching, and continuous improvment.
  • Coordinating activities to support excellence in teaching.
  • Providing support for course planning and instructional design, pedagogical development, and educational technology.
  • Communicating the importance of teaching and learning and promoting policies to support and reward high-quality teaching.
