Teaching Resources

There is always room for growth.

Lamar University is proud of its excellent instructional faculty, and our Center only seeks to enhance those skills, assist in efficiency, and support the faculty to success.

Even the best of professors can improve teaching, learn to use innovative new tools, and reflect on practices in the classroom to enhance student learning, retention, and growth. In the end, only the outcomes of what our students do at present and in the future will reveal how successful our teaching instruction is.
