Teaching/Learning Academy (TLA)

The Teaching/Learning Academy (TLA), a community of practice, supports new professors, counselors, and librarians as they develop Individualized Learning Plans, a fundamental phase of the tenure process designed to assist tenure candidates to expand and improve their professional practices and students' learning. The goal of the TLA is to help tenure-track faculty develop a reflective approach to their teaching that is anchored in the tenets of action research and the Essential Competencies of a Valencia Educator. The TLA provides support on pedagogy, course design, student development, and professional portfolio development.
