Diversity in Teaching & Learning
Explore the Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) Diversity & Learning Web site to learn about multicultural education and strategies that support the diverse learning needs of students of all ages and backgrounds, including those at IUPUC.
From 2006-07, CTL was proud to be a project partner in Logrando Secundaria, a ten-month research project to identify, document, and develop strategies to help Latino youth in Columbus stay in school, succeed in their coursework, and graduate from high school. The project was funded by a grant from Irwin Financial Foundation.
Early Childhood Education
An explosion of development occurs in the human brain during the first three years of life, forming a foundation on which all later learning is constructed. CTL strives to support educators who specialize in early childhood education by:
- Offering a collection of curriculum and teaching resources available for early childhood professionals.
- Serving as a forum for educators in early childhood programs to share professional information, needs, and experiences.
- Hosting workshops and conferences in collaboration with the Columbus Chapter of the Indiana Association for the Education of Young Children.
