Department Training

TEP can tailor our workshops to address specific questions and issues that are pressing to a department’s faculty and graduate student instructors. Department colleagues occasionally attend TEP workshops together and then report back to their group. Contact tep@uoregon.edu to discuss how we can best meet your needs.

Our core skills workshops are:

  • Aligned Course Design
  • Teaching Toward Inclusion and Belonging
  • Student Metacognition and Motivation
  • Research-led Techniques to ‘Activate’ a Class
  • and What Should be Different about Teaching at a Research University?

We also offer workshops on Assessment, Grading and Feedback Strategies; Difficult Dialogues; Large-Class Teaching; Facilitating Discussion; and Getting to Know Students.  

Facilitated Discussion

TEP staff occasionally facilitate unit-level discussion around shared learning goals, sharpening a discipline-specific sense of teaching quality, addressing trends in student participation, and other issues. Email tep@uoregon.edu to explore whether a facilitated discussion could be valuable for you and your colleagues.   

Support for Your Program Ideas

TEP can offer logistical support, central publicity and coordination, and expert guidance to bring forward a number of teaching-related programming ideas that are emerging directly from members of the UO community. Let’s work together to bring your ideas to life.
