Teaching/Learning Strategies


The Derek Bok Center for Teaching and Learning seeks to create transformational learning experiences for faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates in Harvard's Faculty of Arts and Sciences through experimentation, innovation, and evidence-based practices.

Their mission includes:

  • discovering new and better ways to teach by partnering with faculty and students to catalyze creativity, experimentation and innovation;
  • cultivating excellent instruction through effective training and support for faculty, graduate students and undergraduates in teaching and scholarly communication; and
  • researching what constitutes effective practice by conducting rigorous assessments of teaching and learning methods in person and online.

The Bok Center provides several hands-on program opportunities for faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates. In addition, they maintain a database of teaching and learning resources for those looking for a quick reference to help with creating their next lesson.
