Welcome

The Stearns Center for Teaching and Learning is a hub for promoting teaching excellence and innovation. Housing the staff from Digital Learning and Teaching Excellence, the Center is a one-stop destination for all George Mason faculty and graduate students seeking to explore and test new ideas for teaching methods and techniques including online course delivery and integrated instructional design. The Stearns Center offers a range of learning and support opportunities for instructors across Mason’s campuses, whether you are just getting started or have years of experience. We invite you to explore our online resources and to visit us at the Center to learn about available programs and support. If you don’t find what you are looking for, please contact us. We look forward to working with you.
