Tulane University’s Center for Engaged Learning and Teaching (CELT) provides theoretical and applied resources, tools and direction to the university community to realize the goal of engaged learning at Tulane. We are here to facilitate the transformation of our students into creative, inquisitive, ethical, and responsible scholars and citizens of the world.
What is engaged learning? It 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.
Engaged learning aims to help 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. The Center for Engaged Learning and Teaching is designed to provide students and faculty with the opportunities to participate in engaged learning experiences that complement their academic and career goals. It is for this reason that CELT has four primary areas of focus or cores:
