Mack Center for Inquiry on Teaching and Learning

The Mack Center enhances teaching by advancing the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). Administered by FACET, the center stimulates inquiry in SoTL, promotes the results of those inquiries, and fosters educational excellence at Indiana University and internationally.


The Mack Center:

  • Supports SoTL research by Mack Fellows and other faculty to develop highly effective, evidence-based strategies for enhancing teaching and learning
  • Sponsors conferences, workshops, and publications that develop faculty members’ and graduate students’ teaching skills and share knowledge about SoTL
  • Nurtures the growth of university, state, and global communities of teacher-scholars

Collaborate with the Center

The Mack Center collaborates with people and programs worldwide—including FACET initiatives such as the Future Faculty Teaching Fellows Summer Institute and journals—to advance the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.
