Hear More From Us
Great teachers often have considerable dynamism–a capacity to express their intellectual passions and invite students into beautiful, urgent, and authentic texts, problems, and questions. But good teaching isn’t a “you have it or you don’t” proposition.
Research tells us an extraordinary amount about how people learn–teaching excellence is more about a career of informed experimentation and reflection than a set of personality traits.
Teaching evaluation at UO uses multiple windows into faculty teaching philosophy and practice, including peer review, student feedback, and faculty members’ own self presentation.
The Office of the Provost and UO Senate are re-considering UO’s teaching evaluation instruments and protocols to mitigate bias and ensure evaluation supports the development and enrichment of UO’s teaching culture.
CAITs are compensated, competitively awarded faculty learning and leadership communities that investigate topics of timely interest through lenses of both pedagogical and institutional change.
CAIT fellows meet over the course of a year, devoting time to cohort-building and activities like reading research, revising courses, developing resources for colleagues, and recommending policy and curricular changes.
