Teaching and Learning Center

The primary role of the Teaching and Learning Center is to provide guidance and support for continuous student learning. We work with teacher teams and departments to fulfill the school mission. We foster dialogue around the research supporting the best practices in curriculum alignment, assessment, and instruction. Our teachers work collaboratively to share their teaching strategies so that all students benefit from our collective expertise.

In addition to focusing on student learning, the Teaching and Learning Center supports faculty and staff in their professional learning. As members of a variety of educational organizations, we have access to the latest educational research. We subscribe to premier educational journals, share articles, explore webinars, and find conferences that keep teachers excited about their craft.

This dual role of supporting both student and professional learning makes the Teaching and Learning Center at ASD an exciting hub. We welcome you to visit the center and learn more about how we support the mission of the American School of Dubai.
