Welcome to the University at Albany's Institute for Teaching, Learning & Academic Leadership. We exist to serve the faculty and teaching staff through programs of instructional, curriculum and faculty development. Our focus is support for advanced learning at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Students come to the university to develop perspectives, attitudes, skills, knowledge and habits of thought that contribute to their success in a complex world. They need to be increasingly adept in the analysis, evaluation, and management of expanding information. They also need to commit to professional practices guided by ethics and high standards.
