Good, Fast, Cheap: How Centers of Teaching and Learning Can Capitalize in Today's Resource-Constrained Context
Truong, Michael H.; Juillerat, Stephanie; Gin, Deborah H. C.
To Improve the Academy, v35 n1 p180-195 Jan 2016
This article provides leaders and educational developers of Centers for Teaching and Learning (CTL) with innovative and practical strategies on how to increase their centers' capacity and impact by focusing on quality, efficiency, and cost. This "good, fast, cheap" model represents a promising way that CTL can continue to grow, scale, and innovate in the midst of limited resources. By leveraging existing campus resources, external vendor products, and low-cost technologies, CTL are able to remain effective and impactful, without compromising quality or requiring abundant resources. This article will include real use-case examples from a CTL at a mid-size, private, nonprofit university in Southern California and its use of the "good, fast, cheap" model in its planning and implementation with the aim of generalizing these creative solutions to be applied elsewhere.
