The Center for the Advancement of Teaching seeks to recognize and cultivate learner-centered teaching throughout the university. We provide support to faculty as they strive to balance cutting-edge research with thoughtful teaching. We want to help you harness the excitement and innovation of ground-breaking research and bring it to the classroom setting, where learning becomes the proper object of our study. We promote student success at FIU by supporting the faculty as they foster a culture of teaching excellence. FIU CAT provides a space for intellectual exchange about teaching and learning, encouraging faculty at all levels to devote their energy to student learning and assisting them to find new ways of facilitating our community project, education.
