Welcome to the Bruce A. Rothwell Center for Teaching and Learning Excellence (RCTLE) website. As a virtual center, you can find all the teaching and technology resources of your RCTLE here at your fingertips. Dr. Rothwell was an avid supporter of lifelong learning whose seventeen years of service to the University ended too soon with his passing in 2009. Today, the Center stands as a tribute to his memory and supports all faculty at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University’s Worldwide Campus.


The Worldwide RCTLE’s mission is to empower faculty members in their pursuit of professional growth through diverse offerings for the universal goal of student success. RCTLE will research and continuously improve/innovate to ensure we are a source and model of the most accurate and current strategies in teaching and learning. We offer friendly and informed opportunities for faculty to reflect on their practice and increase student engagement and learning.
