Biographical / Historical

The Office for Teaching, Learning and Assessment (TLA) supports teaching and learning at DePaul by providing services, resources, and events focused on best practices in teaching; disseminating research on learning in higher education; offering supplemental instruction in historically difficult courses; and supporting DePaul faculty and staff in assessing student learning. Resources for faculty members include teaching consultations, professional feedback, a lending library of professional literature, and an annual Teaching and Learning Conference. Each year, TLA collects assessment reports from programs, departments, schools, and colleges across the university. These assessments are used to determine whether students are meeting the learning outcomes established the previous year.
