The Center for the Advancement of Learning is a fusion of the unit formerly known as the Center for Academic Technology and the Research Academy for Integrated Learning. Housed in the Learning Resources Division, the Center for the Advancement of Learning is an extension of the Office of the Chief Academic Officer that works with faculty, staff, graduate student instructors (TAs), postdoctoral scholars, and administrators across UDC’s colleges, divisions, and campuses.

The Center offers a diverse range of services, programs, and professional development activities to advance teaching and learning. The Center team maintains advanced degrees and certifications in a variety of academic disciplines, and provides programming in cross-disciplinary, discipline-specific, and institutional capacities. Each program is customized to the individual needs of departments, schools, and colleges. The Center strives to promote a learner-centered culture that values and rewards inclusive, innovative, and effective instruction and course design.
