We are excited to launch a brand new set of web pages dedicated to assessment of teaching. This content is designed to support instructors in an exploration of various methods of assessment to improve their teaching. The content also offers support to academic units to establish and sustain a culture of teaching excellence. We invite you to browse this new information, and learn about the resources and different levels of support offered at the Teaching Center.
We’d like to congratulate Charline Rowland (teaching consultant), Mark Vehec (web developer), Robin Albright (senior instructional designer), and Tahirah Walker (manager, Teaching Support) for earning the Teaching Center’s 2019 Advancing Educational Excellence award! The annual honor is a peer-driven award that recognizes Teaching Center staff members who exemplify the values of the center, demonstrate a positive attitude and commitment to responsibilities, and make above-and-beyond contributions to the University.
Our center is available to assist faculty interested in submitting a proposal for the 2020 Innovation in Education Awards. Faculty may submit a consultation request to meet with a teaching consultant on Jan. 22-23 in Room 811B of Alumni Hall, and/or join us for our Grant Writing Workshop on Jan. 24 in Alumni Hall for support in developing a proposal. Please contact email@example.com with any questions.
