Friday, February 19th, 2010

Exemplary Learning Website Highlights Teaching Strategies of Distinguished UO Faculty

Friday, February 19th, 2010

UO Libraries’ Interactive Media Group has collaborated with the Teaching Effectiveness Program (TEP) to build a new site that is a notable resource for instructors. While most UO instructors enter the classroom with in-depth training in their field, they are not necessarily trained in how to teach their subject in a way that engages students. Throw in the challenges of teaching large classes and dealing with technology, both new and experienced instructors can feel at a loss. With the assistance of UO faculty distinguished for excellence in teaching, the Teaching Effectiveness Program and IMG have created a website to share the strategies and resources these faculty use to promote student learning. This site includes video interviews, access to course materials and links to additional resources on student-centered learning. Check out the Exemplary Learning website to learn more.
