The Center for Advanced Study of Teaching and Learning

Effective teaching and learning are the foundation for opportunity, success, and well-being. The mission of Center for Advanced Study of Teaching and Learning (CASTL) at the University of Virginia is to advance the quality and impact of teaching through scientific study in educational settings from infancy to higher education. CASTL is an interdisciplinary center that provides leadership on effective teaching and learning. Our goal is to meaningfully transform education by:

  • Developing evidence-based theories of effective teaching and learning via large, longitudinal studies of diverse classrooms around the world
  • Creating, evaluating, and disseminating tools for measuring and improving teaching and learning
  • Developing innovative support systems that develop useful knowledge and skills via cutting-edge applications of technology
