About Us

The Center for the Advancement of Teaching seeks to recognize and cultivate learning-centered, evidence based, and inclusive teaching throughout the university. We want to help faculty 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.
