The Center for Teaching, Research, and Learning provides support for faculty research being conducted across the university. Our team specializes in a variety of quantitative, qualitative, and survey research methodologies and software. Our support takes many forms:
- Consultations at all stages of the research process including research design, data collection, data analysis, and visualization.
- Coordinating access to AU’s research tools such as research software applications and the High Performance Computing cluster.
- Pedagogical consultations on how to effectively integrate data/research into your classes.
- Recoded software workshops on-demand for your students on a specific research software application.
- Relevant and timely research applications workshops throughout the year for faculty, staff, and students.
