Welcome to the Teaching and Learning Center

The Lamar Institute of Technology Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) promotes student success by providing faculty, staff, and our partnering ISDs with opportunities for staff training and professional development. Free of charge, the TLC provides a wide variety of customized training as well as instructional support by subject matter experts who are leaders in their respective fields. In June 2017, our new president, Dr. Lonnie L. Howard, led LIT through a Shared Vision process that resulted in this innovative Center becoming the first of its kind among the Texas State University System‘s two-year colleges. TLC services and resources are also available to faculty and staff from Lamar State College-Orange, Lamar State College-Port Arthur, and local ISD Dual Credit faculty.


As part of LIT’s Shared Vision, the TLC was launched to encourage the pursuit of creativity and innovation by equipping attendees with improved competencies, assessment methods, and expanded skills.
