It’s time to replace teaching centers with centers for educational innovation, evaluation and research.
Virtually every university now has a teaching center or a faculty development center to improve the quality of teaching. The names differ — there are centers for teaching excellence, for teaching innovation or transformation, and for the advancement of teaching — but their missions are similar: to help faculty and graduate students with course design, pedagogy, classroom management, online teaching, inclusive teaching, classroom technology, academic integrity and constructive feedback.
Their approach tends to be pretty uniform, consisting largely of teaching consultations, workshops and classroom observations.
