The Learning and Educational Center


Welcome to the newly established Learning and Educational Center (LEC). The purpose of the new center is to serve as an innovative pedagogical hub where faculty from diverse disciplines can connect and learn from one another while engaging in the pedagogy of teaching. The center is dedicated to providing faculty with resources that are designed to support and promote a culture of excellence and ultimately enhance student learning.

With the new center being in its early stages of development, we invite faculty to submit their ideas for partnering opportunities, workshops, discussion roundtables, guest lecturers, university-wide forums etc.

The LEC is temporarily located on the main campus in the Carl DeSantis building on the third floor in room 3096.

Faculty are welcome to contact us directly with their ideas at

We look forward to hearing from you!

The mission of the NSU Learning and Educational Center is to promote, support, and celebrate excellence in teaching by building a sense of community and a culture of collegial connectivity.
The goals of the LEC are aligned with NSU’s mission and core values by promoting quality teaching with service-learning and related academic initiatives.


Goal 1 (Academic Excellence) - promotes quality teaching excellence through the implementation of recurring workshops, certifications and events that connect Best Practices directly to NSU’s wide continuum of curricula and teaching needs.

Goal 5 (Opportunity) – supports a wide array of recurring workshops connecting Best Teaching Practices directly to Student Learning Outcomes and connecting faculty with just the right resource.


Goal 6 (Community) - serves as a center where faculty can connect and learn from each other, excelling in the latest teaching practices and strategies used to enhance the culture of teaching.
