The Center for Teaching & Learning is a university-wide resource for Humboldt's teaching community.  Its goals are to promote excellence in teaching through dialogue, inquiry and research, and to offer instructors feedback and an opportunity to reflect on their teaching.  To fulfill these goals, the CTL must offer a trustworthy environment to those it serves, and thus has established the following policies. These policies are also supported by the Ethical Guidelines for Educational Developers developed by the national POD Network in Higher Education.  Please address any questions or concerns to the CTL’s director.

The CTL is dedicated to providing educators with opportunities to discuss and observe themselves and their students in a confidential manner, for formative purposes, without risk of evaluation or censure. Therefore:​

The CTL will gather feedback (mid-semester feedback, observation etc.) about a course only upon the request of the teacher.

The CTL does not make feedback information available to anyone except the instructor.

Feedback gathered and/or given by the CTL is meant to be formative.

The CTL will release the name of a participant only upon his or her request. At the request of a participant, the CTL will provide written verification of participation listing the type(s) of activity, date(s) and CTL consultant(s). Such “certificates of participation” may be included in tenure and promotion files, or used for other evaluative processes.
