The CTLT's purpose is to provide Cal Poly educators with knowledge and support to develop skills and expertise for exemplary teaching on their journey toward excellence.
The CTLT's mission is helping educators create equitable and inclusive learning environments and experiences that maximize success for all Cal Poly students. We provide evidence-informed guidance for course design, learning activities and teaching strategies that incorporate best practices in accessibility, equity and inclusion. Our programs and services are informed by scholarship, designed to model effective instruction practices, tailored to the realities of educators’ priorities, focused on well-defined curricular outcomes, and integrated with academic technologies that support teaching and learning success.
Members of the CTLT team come from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds but we share a deep interest in the scholarship on teaching and learning as well as a passion for sharing what we have learned with our colleagues.

CTLT's Diversity Action Plan
This plan articulates the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology’s (CTLT) goals in support of diversity, equity, and inclusion and the intended actions designed to achieve them. The CTLT’s role as a unit dedicated to supporting campus educators means that our DAP goals encompass two areas: (1) Programming and services goals that will support campus educators to become more equity-minded and inclusive in their teaching, and (2) Staff development goals intended to contribute to continuing education for all CTLT staff on issues related to DEI in higher education and operational goals that are designed to infuse equity and inclusion into the CTLT's internal policies and practices.
CTLT offers modest stipends for a limited number of extended workshops, subject to the policies described in the CTLT Stipend Policies document (updated July 2022). Click below to download the pdf.
