About VPTL

Tower

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 works to enrich the depth and range of Stanford learning experiences, leverages digital technology to make Stanford research and scholarship more broadly accessible beyond campus, and supports the growing interest in extended educational programs, which provide meaningful learning opportunities to additional audiences around the world.

VPTL was established in December 2014, combining Academic Computing Services, the Center for Teaching and Learning, the Office of the Vice Provost for Online Learning, and in 2015, the Classroom Technology Group within the Office of the Registrar.  By operating as one organization, we offer our faculty, graduate students and undergraduates a coordinated, sustainable approach to advancing teaching and learning that is accelerating innovation at Stanford.
