Welcome to the Carroll University Teaching Commons! Grounded in our commitment to an exceptional liberal arts education, The Teaching Commons highlights the most essential work we do: educating students.
Teaching is not simply the transmission and receipt of facts. Rather, excellent teaching promotes engaging dialogue between and amongst faculty and students, a pushing and pulling that prompts all of us to do our work even better. A teaching community also supports its members growth, explorations, and experimentations. In this way, the spirit of The Teaching Commons reflects and exemplifies The Carroll Compass as a way of navigating the world and bringing the liberal arts to life in all we do. It is my sincere hope that The Teaching Commons supports our entire community in growth and exploration.
Simply put, teaching and learning is Carroll University’s raison d’être. I hope The Teaching Commons connects you, during your journey to become the teacher and learner you aspire to be, to both our community and our values.
