The mission of the Institute for Teaching and Learning (ITL) is to leverage data and best practices to guide innovative, inclusive, and integrative teaching at Youngstown State University. ITL is responsible for providing campus wide teaching and learning resources, including workshops, consultation, online tools, guest speakers, and more. In addition to faculty development efforts, ITL also coordinates and supports continuous improvement activities across campus, including academic and co-curricular student learning assessment. ITL supports the accreditation standards of the Higher Learning Commission by assisting faculty and staff in systematic, comprehensive assessment and improvement of student learning. All assessment data is shared in aggregate form only, and confidentiality of individual students is safeguarded. If assessment information is shared beyond internal efforts of program improvement or accreditation, departments and the Office of Assessment abide by the Institutional Review Board guidelines at YSU and FERPA regulations, as appropriate.
