Initiatives

Fulfilling our mission of supporting faculty in student achievement, the Center for Teaching & Learning (CTL) of Athens Technical College, takes a variety of roles in projects from coordinating educational technology projects to serving as instructional and educational support for ATC faculty. Staff have helped with Caterpillar Job Fairs, Open Access Week, Engineers Week,  and other community related events. Faculty, if you need assistance from us, such as help with Blackboard or would like to book an equipment/technology reservation or would like to schedule a consultation, please contact us, using our helpdesk form (Intranet login needed).
