The Center for Engaged Learning and Teaching (CELT) was formed as a result of Tulane University‘s 2008 “What’s Your Big Idea” initiative and Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) to enhance student learning at Tulane.
Engaged is a type of learning in which students experience themselves not as passive recipients of information delivered by experts, but as active participants both in the classroom and in the world. Through engaged learning, students realize their potential as intellectual, social, and ethical architects capable of designing their own futures, as well as helping to shape those of their communities, cultures, nations, and natural environment.
Tulane recognizes that there is not one type of engaged learning experience. These experiences must meet the unique needs of the students’ academic experience, skills, abilities, and goals. CELT' s four primary areas of focus or cores are designed to provide students and faculty with the opportunities to participate in engaged learning experiences that compliment their academic and career goals.
