Apply Now for First-Ever UO Summer Teaching Institute

Lee Rumbarger, April 27, 2018

The Office of the Provost, Provost’s Teaching Academy Advisory Board, and TEP are proud to announce the first-ever UO Summer Teaching Institute, a banner event that will convene faculty for an intensive week of focus on teaching June 25-29, 2018.

The UO Summer Teaching Institute offers two ways to be involved:

(1) Core Skills Workshops

Dip in for one or more interactive, large-format workshops led by TEP and the Teaching Academy Advisory Board designed to build shared understanding of teaching practices that are inclusive, engaged, and research-led.

These workshops will be “Aligned Courses Design,” “Teaching Toward Inclusion and Belonging,” “Research-Led Practices to ‘Activate’ a Class,” “Student Motivation and Metacognition,” and “Teaching at a Research University.”

(2) Stipended Topical Pathways

Participants selected for one of the topical pathways—teaching about difference, inequality, and agency; teaching courses with high first-year student enrollment—will receive $1,500 stipends to attend the core skills workshops and specialized sessions in their area. Faculty selected for the Lundquist College of Business and College of Arts and Sciences online initiatives will form a third topical pathway about teaching online. Redesign a course or develop a new one with the support of experienced colleagues and professional staff in an energizing, collegial environment.

How to Participate

Note your interest in one of the core skills workshops here (we will have 15-20 spaces open in each workshop).

Or, for the full Summer Institute experience, interested faculty are invited to submit a brief application for consideration for one of the stipended topical pathways (15 places are open in each, 30 total).

Application for:  Teaching Difference, Inequality, and Agency pathway

Application for: Teaching First-Year Students pathway

(The online teaching pathway will be filled by faculty from the LCB and CAS online programs.)

Applications are due Monday, May 28. This opportunity is for both TTF and NTTF.
