The TLTC Launch Program

TLTC Launch Program Logo

Central to the TLTC’s mission, its Faculty Launch Program provides faculty with a cohesive but customizable series of professional development activities to help them advance their teaching, collect evidence of their effectiveness, and leverage innovative, evidence-based approaches in their classrooms.  Faculty who satisfy all ten of the Launch Program activities will receive a certificate of completion from the Office of the Provost.
