The McGraw Center views teaching and learning as processes of inquiry. For teachers, that inquiry entails reflecting on what they want students to learn and deciding how to advance and assess that learning. For students, that inquiry involves the self-conscious questioning and awareness of their approaches to learning. Thus effective teaching and successful learning depend on an understanding of the research on human learning. In our consultations, programs and publications, we translate that research into meaningful ideas for practice for both teachers and students.
We support faculty members and instructors as they advance as teachers, graduate students as they begin their teaching practice and progress as teachers and professionals, and undergraduates as they develop as learners and scholars.
