The Johnson Center for Creative Teaching and Learning (JCCTL) began in 2001 after Gettysburg College received a challenge grant from The Christian A. Johnson Endeavor Foundation. That grant established an endowment, and the activities of the JCCTL are funded by the interest earned by that endowment. The JCCTL provides faculty with opportunities to hone their pedagogical skills, explore collaborative and experiential learning techniques, and incorporate technological innovations. Behind its programs lie the beliefs that learning must occur both within and beyond the classroom and that faculty, staff, and students have much to teach one another. The Educational Technology blog summarizes ways that faculty have incorporated technological innovations into their courses.
