Abstract

Centers for Teaching and Leaming ( CTLs) are established to promote teaching excellence. While CTLs are effective at fostering teaching excellence in the main, they have provided little attention to addressing potentially unique needs of STEM faculty. This article proffers explanations as to why CTLs do not focus on promoting STEM pedagogies and suggests ways that CTLs can assist in the dissemination of STEM best teaching practices.
