Teaching and Learning Center
Established in 2006, the Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) facilitates student learning by providing the professional development resources that lead to the growth and success of Clark faculty and staff.
We support the college's mission, vision, and core themes by promoting a learning-centered community that supports teaching and service excellence in a collaborative environment.
