The Office of the Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning (VPTL) promotes and advances the vibrant, intellectual endeavor of teaching and learning at Stanford.

VPTL provides essential resources and learning support services to Stanford students through its student learning center at Lathrop Library, including:

In addition, VPTL provides residential computing and networking support through Resident Computer Consultants (RCCs), and computing and printing services in clusters located throughout campus.  VPTL offers a range of student jobs and internships, and credit-bearing courses to enrolled Stanford students. 

In addition to student services, VPTL staff members collaborate with faculty, instructors, and departments to enrich the depth and range of Stanford learning experiences, from classroom practice to classroom technology adoption, from course design to curriculum transformation, and from digital learning initiatives to research-driven learning innovation. VPTL is developing new learning spaces, from flexible classrooms and laboratories to online platforms. It also helps faculty develop new modes of learning and learning content, for example online, flipped, and blended courses that are made available to Stanford students through the SUClass instance of the Lagunita online learning platform.

VPTL supports Canvas, Stanford’s learning management system, as well as Stanford’s new course evaluation system. It provides orientation and mentoring for Teaching Assistants.
