We’ve got a new name: The Academic Commons

New name, same expert and reliable support!

As of today, November 21, the Center for Teaching and Learning will now be called The Academic Commons (AC). We may have a new name, but don’t worry, our services and staff are not changing.

The Academic Commons (AC) is Jefferson’s reimagined infrastructure supporting the life cycle of academic discovery and learning.

What We Do

We provide educational technologies and instructional design support to deliver academic content in engaging ways to students. We offer support for the LabArchives electronic research notebook used by all research labs across Jefferson and support for the publication of Jefferson’s research through our Media Services and the Office for Professional Writing, Publishing, and Communications.  We organize and provide access to published information and resources through the University Libraries, preserve Jefferson-related materials in the Jefferson Digital Commons and the Libraries’ Archives & Special Collections.
