TLC Mission Statement
The mission of the Teaching and Learning Center is to inspire and enable faculty to enhance teaching and learning through the effective use of instructional technologies. Providing quality resources and focused training and support, the TLC is the hub of the college's professional development activities that contribute to the pedagogical and technical knowledge of LPC faculty, staff, and administrators. The TLC also provides leadership, coordination, and management of the college's web site, instructional technology efforts, and Distance Education efforts. Ultimately, TLC work will result in student-centered courses that allow all students, including those with disabilities, to reach their educational goals.
