Welcome to the Centre for Learning and Teaching


The Centre for Learning and Teaching (CLT) aims to cultivate and promote research and scholarship in the area of learning and teaching. CLT supports teaching at Universiti Tunku Abdul Rahman (UTAR). The primary task of CLT is to develop and run programmes to support teaching and learning. Although students are ultimately responsible for their own learning, we recognise the close relationship between teaching excellence and student learning and consider the support of teaching excellence our principal mission.

CLT works with instructors to explore issues of pedagogy and practice in order to advance student learning at UTAR. Through our interdisciplinary workshops, forums, and ongoing seminars, CLT encourages instructors to exchange ideas, study new approaches and test innovative strategies for building student skills and understanding.
