The Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) invites faculty and staff to discuss their questions and comments about how the CTL assists students with mathematics, science, writing, testing, and/or study skills concerns. Post your questions and comments to this blog so that the CTL can review and respond to your feedback. To learn more about the CTL services, go to www.uis.edu/ctl .

The CTL staff looks forward to hearing from you!

Supplemental Instruction (Studios)

Does your course have a high D, F, and withdrawal rate? If so, contact us (ctl@uis.edu) about the possibility of providing supplemental instruction (SI) for your course. Read about our science SI (studio) program to see an example of SI. Post questions about this service here.

On Campus One-to-One Tutoring

Would some of your students benefit from one-to-one tutoring in reading, writing, studying/testing, mathematics, biology, or chemistry? If so, encourage them to visit the CTL to schedule a one-to-one tutoring appointment or use the Faculty Referral Forms to refer students to meet with one of our tutors. Post questions about this service here.


Would you like one of our staff members to present an in-class workshop for your students? Or would you prefer that your students attend one of our workshops as an out-of-class assignment? Check out our workshop topics to see if either service would supplement the content you are teaching in your class:

Then, email ctl@uis.edu to request either an in-class workshop or an out-of-class workshop requirement. Post questions about this service here.

Online Tutoring

Did you know that the CTL offers online tutoring either synchronously using Elluminate V-Rooms or asynchronously using Blackboard Discussion Forums? Post questions about this service here.
