The Duke Consortium for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (CoSTL) consists of professors, staff, and graduate students at Duke who share an interest in several key areas of education:

1. Improving their own understanding and practice of teaching.

2. Sharing ideas about student learning and teaching practices among peers both within and between disciplines.

3. Learning more about the scholarship of teaching and learning, including best practices, professional development, and training opportunities.

4. Collaborating on research efforts in education and curriculum development at Duke and elsewhere.

5. Providing a "home," networking opportunities, and support for anyone who is interested in teaching, learning, pedagogy, and other educational practices in higher education.

For fall 2006, CoSTL's first meeting date is Monday 9/11/2006 in Old Chem 101, 11:45 am - 1 pm.

HOWEVER, we will usually meet on Wednesdays, from 11:45 am - 1 pm in Breedlove Room, Perkins Library. The complete fall meeting schedule will be posted soon.
