The Yehuda Elkana Center for Teaching, Learning, and Higher Education Research contributes to CEU’s longstanding commitment to excellence in teaching and a community engaged in inquiry, debate, and discovery. We collaborate with faculty as they explore contemporary, research-based approaches to enhance their teaching and mentoring. We support doctoral students as they grow as apprentices and future teachers, scholars, and educational leaders. And we help to advance knowledge about teaching and learning by documenting our work and sharing our research.

The Elkana Center comprises teaching and learning scholars who work with doctoral students and faculty across all departments and schools. We do not advocate a single model of teaching excellence. Rather, informed by recent research on learning as well as earlier theoretical traditions we collaborate with faculty members who wish to explore various aspects of their teaching.
