Morgan Teaching and Learning Center
Promoting excellence in teaching and learning at WPI
Welcome! Teaching in WPI’s innovative project-based curriculum and within our distinctive calendar is both deeply rewarding and challenging, through all stages of career development. The Morgan Teaching and Learning Center is a faculty-led unit that maintains and strengthens instructional effectiveness and student learning by offering programs, services, and resources to faculty and to student teaching assistants. We also support innovation in the curriculum and in teaching practice, and foster campus-wide dialogue on teaching and student learning.
